Exhibition: Mountains, Fall on Us

Event Series Event Series (See All)

May 10 @ 10:00 AM 5:00 PM

Limerick City Gallery of Art is delighted to present Mountains, Fall on Us by Austin McQuinn from Friday 26th April to Sunday 9th June.

Mountains, Fall on Us invokes the poetic object as a means of salvation, alongside micro gestures of iconoclasm.  Paintings on discarded military engravings, a tower of Aran sweaters, medals, clay tongues, sequins, bog oak and upholstery fabric are reclaimed and refashioned with a new baroque sensibility. Queered with an optimism and infused with what the artist has called ‘a kind of mad hope’, McQuinn takes possession of these found images and objects, painting over them with ink in an extravagant and decadent defacement.
