CRUX: A Dialogue in Metal
Visual Arts @ glór
Gunvor Anhøj, Michael Calnan, Moss Gaynor, John Hogan, Jane Murtagh.
The essence of these five artists’ work concerns the movement of metal and the story it evokes. CRUX will illustrate the diversity of metal and will showcase its myriad possibilities – from the delicate tracery of Jane Murtagh’s work, to the solid architectural forms of Moss Gaynor, to the subtle lines and sensual curves of Michael Calnan’s, John Hogan and Gunver Anhøj ‘s work.
The artists’ ideas and stories are inspired and visualised through a combination of interests in the natural world and the world of architecture and industrial design. From large scale welded metal constructions to delicate, highly finished objects – the works portray the material and the makers behind it, and this unique exhibition will reveal their stories through the dynamism of metal using a combination of contemporary practices and ancient techniques.
A Guided Tour of the Exhibition and Artists’ Talk, facilitated by John Tynan of The Crafts Council of Ireland will take place on Saturday 4 March at 11.45am.
Free of charge and all welcome.
