Niamh O'Malley: 'Model'


Click on Post Title for link to this show. The framed works, in the entrance towards the gallery and in the main space itself, are as crucial to the reading of the show as the centre pieces of sculpture and projection. They create another engrossing layer to the viewing experience, where perception is caught between the images behind the glass and the surface of the glass itself. Whether the glass is tinted, or whether the inside of the frames and the media used to create the drawings have been treated with a carefully calibrated and closely matched monochrome range of media, is near impossible to work out. A hugely rewarding and engaging show.
