Colour – Paint – Painting is a collaborative exhibition by the artists Helen Mac Mahon, Kate O’Shea, and Elad Rosen.
Curated by Moran Been-Noon, this is part of the Platform Arts, Belfast – TACTIC, Sample-Studios curatorial exchange.
Each artist brings to this project their own unique practice and way of interpreting the concepts of painting; as a method, as a material, as well as the importance of light in this process and the way it engages its audience.
The three artists will work in their studios and in the gallery, as part of the preparatory process and through-out the run of the exhibition, developing the space as a collaborative piece. The work will include layers of light, colour, paint, and print. It will involve a wide range of materials and methods, forming an eclectic comment on contemporary painting and installation practices.
Exhibition runs until 1 October. On the last day of the exhibition, visual artist Anita Groener & poet Kathy D’Arcy will conduct a critical conversation about the exhibition’s outcomes and processes. The two artists, whose work is tightly engaged with the political reality which surrounds it, will discuss not only the curatorial and artistic outcomes but also the creative and conceptual intentions from which the exhibition developed.
