Wishing a very happy birthday to the Arts Council of Ireland who mark a special anniversary in 2022. #ArtsCouncilat70 ⁠
⁠
As we look back at important milestones over the past 70 years with our colleagues in the arts, one memory that stands out for us is Into the Light -  a series of exhibitions which showcased of works by over 100 artists from the Arts Councils collection celebrating its 60th anniversary - at The Model, The Hugh Lane, Crawford Art Gallery and Limerick City Gallery of Art ten years ago. 😍
Ciarán Murphy; Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily⁠
Sat. 23 Jan. – Sun. 13 Mar. 2022⁠
⁠
In Ciarán Murphy’s new paintings we encounter an unsettling array of things: strange landscapes, insects, birds, body parts, letters, architectural features and abstract shapes. Objects seem in varying states of flux; things float, or seem in the midst of changing form, while other things seem barely there. ⁠
⁠
The work reflects the artists long standing attempt to grapple with a contemporary world that is completely saturated with images. Images that embody the paradoxical status of being both completely over-bearing, yet irresistible, both entrancing and anxiety provoking. They exert an almost ghostly weightless presence, blurring past, present and future; and indeed our very notions of what constitutes reality. ⁠
