CURRENT EXHIBITION

 

 

SCULPTURE
March 24th - April 11th


The walls will be bare upstairs at the Lavit Gallery from March 24th - but the space will be filled with great art, as three dimensional pieces take centre stage! In an exciting exhibition of sculptural works, Cormac Boydell, Anna Campbell, Leo Higgins, Sonja Landweer, Fidelma Massey, Michael Quane, Martha Quinn and Killian Schurmann will all participate.

Both Michael Quane and Martha Quinn choose to work in stone. Cork Sculptor, Quane's figures emerge from a bed of marble in his " Gravity Sleeper" pieces with the solid nature of the stone clearly on show. While the movement in Quane's work almost defies the nature of stone, Quinn's pieces almost defy the material in their use of clean geometric lines. Taking nature as her inspiration, this will be Sligo based, Quinn's first time showing at the Lavit.

Colour plays an integral part in the work of Cormac Boydell and Killian Schurmann. Schurmann's 3D hot sculpted glass pieces are most like paintings - transparent abstract landscapes and details from nature. Allihies based, Boydell employs the use of clay and glazes in his rugged works inspired by beasts and forces of nature such as fire. Clay is used in a different manor by Sonja Landweer, with the focus less on the material and more on the form. Landweer will also exhibit some of her bronzes, again focusing on pure form.

Leo Higgins, Anna Campbell and Fidelma Massey will also be exhibiting works in bronze. Higgins a director of CAST foundry in Dublin, will focus on trees as his subject matter, while his colleague Campbell chooses animal life as her subject, with both showing their expertise with the use of bronze. Massey chooses a more mythical inspiration in her works and there is always the sense of a narrative and humour in her works.

All of the pieces on exhibit, will be domestic in scale. A preview of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday March 24th from 5.00 - 7.00, with the exhibition continuing until April 11th.
