On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the organisation, Backwater Artists Group are proud to present a group exhibition of Backwater studio members to be held in the Lavit Gallery, Wandesford Quay, Cork.
The exhibition focuses on the way the artists respond to changing definitions of landscape, climate, borders, and our human intervention in the world. The exhibition considers the various ways artists are concerned and engaging with some of the most pressing issues of our times, and suggests artists have always forged a deeper relationship with the shifting sense of the land around us.
With a diverse selection of artworks, Land of Some other Order presents work ranging from contemporary pastoral landscapes, landscapes which are always in a state of flux, landscapes seeking to redefine our interpretation of what is truly ‘natural’ or native planting, and images which deal with the complexity of image making itself, leading to an exhibition which re-evaluates our relationship with nature and our attempts to redefine our sense of what it is.
The exhibition will feature artwork by Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Angela Gilmour, Angie Shanahan, Ben Reilly, Bernadette Tuite, Carol-Anne Connolly, Darn Thorn, Deirdre O’Brien, Elaine Coakley, Fiona Kelly, Helen O’Shea, Luke Hickey and Sarah Long.
