We are delighted to re-open with an homage, or ‘femage’ to artist Janet Mullarney, who died last year. Elements of Mullarney’s critically acclaimed 2015 exhibition My Mind’s i, recently acquired to the Collection is presented with other sculptural, installation, and collage work from across her prolific career.
In the exhibition, small fragile sculptures are placed against simple backdrops within a heightened lighting scheme, allowing mysterious theatrical scenes to unfold. The juxtaposition of these small seemingly insignificant figures against large open spaces evoke a sense of anarchic independence as well as alluding to the subversive interior of the artist’s mind. My Minds i seeks to express an inner vision suggesting the vastness of experience and the aloneness of each individual in their journey through life.
