5th May – 16th June
Opening reception Friday 4th May 7.30-9.30pm
Originally created for the Sligo’s Hawk’s Well Theatre Mad Hatter programme, Noel Molloy’s sculptural wall relief works are inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic surreal characters in Through the Looking Glass. The book’s tale of confusion, bewilderment and fantastical imagery provide Molloy with a rich palette to draw upon. In this exhibition aimed at children and young people, the artist uses found objects to create bold images of the White Rabbit et al, which are also brought to like in an accompanying film.
Noel Molloy studied at Limerick School of Art and Design (1978-1982) and works in sculpture, mixed media and performance art. He has exhibited and created performance extensively throughout Ireland, Western and Eastern Europe and the U.S.A. He is a founding member of Working Artists Roscommon, and a member of the UNIT1 performance collective. Noel has received awards from Roscommon Arts office, The Arts Council and Visual Artists Ireland. His work is held in public and private collections in Ireland and internationally. He lives and works in Roscommon Ireland.
