Object Date: 1970 Oil on canvas

Painted in 2005 and first exhibited at Droichead Arts centre Drogheda of the same year, as part of the solo exhibition titled simply ‘New Paintings’. The piece was originally hung mounted on a steel frame that sat in the middle of the floor with a panel on each side. One piece, two readings.

It was created to represent the dichotomy that is characteristic in the duality of nature and human existence. Good and evil, male and female, night and day, positivity and negativity. Neither of which exist without the other. It was my first attempt at tackling the nature of self, embracing both fallibilities and frailties, strengths and skills and exploring the male and female sides of the individual.

In 2011 it was re-exhibited as part of ‘Memorate’ at the Millennium Court Arts Centre, Portadown. A one man show of large-scale paintings created in the last 10 years.

Hanging the paintings side by side with a small gap, representing the distance between mutually exclusive or contradictory groups (male and female), yet read as one piece as the title suggests, resolved some questions I had about the original presentation. I felt this was a better solution to the appreciation of the work.

Later that same year it was included in a four-person international touring exhibition, ‘7.42’. Opening in December in Lapua Museum, Lapua, Finland and then in 2012 at The Cable Factory, Helsinki, Finland and finally at Highlanes Gallery, for the Drogheda Arts Festival, Ireland.
