The Upstairs Gallery is proud to present
a solo show by Dublin based artist Marilyn Gaffney
Investigating the mental process of knowing through the process of painting forms as research within this new body of work. Awareness, perception, reasoning and judgment are obvious applications of conscious reasoning but thought takes many subtler forms, such as interpreting. Sensory input, guiding physical actions and empathizing with others.
Cognition refers to thinking.
The image is disrupted by the printing process with zooming, ink running out and other printer ‘mistakes’. Layering back the photographic images, in parts, to its negative format. Sensory input is transformed, reduced, elaborated, stored, recovered and used. This informs the work through the painting process whereby ‘mistakes’ are allowed on the canvas and abstraction comes to play within a semi- representational image of portraits.
Please join us for the opening Sunday June 1st 6pm.com
Everyone is welcome, the show is suitable for adults and children alike!
