‘Beyond the Lines’ Photography & digital art by Gerald Dunne, May 6 – June 2
Gerald Dunne is a photographer, digital artist and fine art printer based in Quin, Co. Clare.
His current exhibition "Beyond the Lines" aims to stir the subconscious in the same way as a flame or lapping water. A visual distraction allowing mental contemplation.
Nature is at the core of the work, often the neglected details around us, brought to life by exploring the colours and forms just beyond our normal perception.
Gerald has moved from a pared down black and white photographic style with a leap into colour and imagination. Although each piece originates with a photograph, they owe more to modern art than to any photographic genre. Some images have an obvious source, others are totally abstract, but the idea is not "what is it a picture of", more "what is it about". The answer is to give the conscious mind a distraction and let the imagination out Beyond the Lines, to see what else is in the wave.
The exhibition is in the Red Couch Space upstairs in The Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon from Friday 6th May 2016, and runs until June 2nd
