Event description
Collection Thoughts - Collection Talks: Kathy Tynan & Andrew Vickery

About this Event

On the occasion of the new acquisitions of Kathy Tynan's Packed Light & Andrew Vickery's Venice Ladder works to the Collection, after their two person exhibition in 2020, join art historian and writer William Gallagher for this exploration of the work of these two distinctive figurative painters.

Though almost opposite in demeanour - one reserved, the other ebullient - both suites of work share an exploration of themes of experience and recollection. And while overtly figurative and technically accomplished, both are much more concerned with capturing something concrete in the emotional rather than the material.

As response to their practice, this talk will look at related ideas in modern Irish and international painting of personal memory and expression, touching on ideas of narrative, pictorial style and the ‘innocent eye’, and how for some remembering is itself an act of imagination.
