Beneath the Surface
10th October – 2nd November 2019
Inspired by a quote from David Lynch, “I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force–a wild pain and decay–also accompanies everything.”, the exhibition will bring together new works completed during the residency programme 2018-2019 in the medium of printmaking, animation, mixed media and painting. The artists involved in the 2018 – 2019 Programme at Creative Spark were David Callan (Louth); Alistair Livingstone (Down); Anthony Corrigan (Louth); Antonia Pina (Chile); Ilaria Demonti (Italy) and Eimhín Farrell (Monaghan). A supporting exhibition of work by Creative Spark Print Studio members will also open at the gallery on the same evening.
Preview reception: Wednesday 9th October at 7pm
