Surface Tension

Padraig Cunningham, Claire Halpin and Linda Shevlin presented new paintings and prints which considered the process of painting: discovery, revision, the relationship between the viewer and the work in question. In this exhibition, they considered interior spaces, family photos and landscapes, and the exploration of these themes through painting. The artists also believed the exhibition space was an important element in the development of their work. While realising the diversity of their paintings, the artists were very conscious of presenting a coherent exhibition in which the viewer can interact with the paintings on an individual basis and with the exhibition as a whole.
