Visual Art: Gallery Friday 22nd February - Saturday 30th March
Louise Peat’s current body of work examines how the development of the online social world is affecting identity and social behaviour. She focuses on communication and specially alludes to the way people today keep in touch by interacting through a screen - via social media and internet networks trying to perpetuate social bonds, relations and intimacy, and believes that there is a disconnect occurring. She expressly asks - are we losing meaningful connection within the process? Louise employs multiple approaches and strategies in her art practice and is open to an investigation through painting, drawing, print, installation, sound, and computer software to create and inform her work. This new body of work includes computer-generated drawings constructed in virtual spaces, scanned paintings and screen shots, which she makes physical through the medium of printingmaking. Louise Peat was born in Dublin where she lives and works. She has a MA in Fine Art in Painting from NCAD, has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and her work is held in many public and private collections.
Official opening on Friday 22nd February at 7.30pm. All welcome.
