VISUAL ART: Gallery Friday 9th August – Saturday 7th September
Out from in-between is an exhibition by Aileen Hamilton featuring new drawings, paintings and sculptural work. Aileen reflects on walking and the act of moving through and connecting with the landscape. Central to her work is the perception of space and time and how an imagined sequence of events unfolds within the limits they impose. Aileen considers ecological cycles and organic processes within her drawings, exploring the delicate balances and repetitive patterns that bind the natural world to form. Isolated, fragmented landscapes appear suspended or floating in a fragile or exposed state. Aileen applies directional lines to depict a flowing energy that seeps in and around her work. This energy grows from a central point - expanding, diffusing and folding back on itself. Recurring motifs emerge and set up rhythms among vivid and muted tones. Using a variety of media, Aileen shifts her focus back and forth between flatness and depth. Aileen Hamilton graduated in Fine Art Painting from NCAD in 2001. She has had solo exhibitions in Ireland, Spain, Japan and Sweden. www.aileenhamilton.eu
