Event description

Description

Taproot Art is proud to announce upcoming group exhibition. REDNESSNESS will present new work from leading local and international contemporary artists, Peter Doyle, Maser, Decoy, Jay Miriam, Mark Todd, Katarina Janeckova and more. ​Rednessness explores red as a property, and the visual output that is elicited by the property. Curated by Sophie Murphy, there will feature a number of works by artists responding to this theme, as well as installations, all too, corresponding to redness. The Fourth Corner bar and Caterway are kindly supplying an array of red refreshments

Artists:

The work of Dublin-born Peter Doyle, appears to derive from a memoriesd state, often depicting those seemingly innocuous snapshots of everyday life through a playful visual appeal. This ‘playful mundanity’ pervades his work, through the use of bright colours and everyday activities of his subjects, like painting of a women in a red room with a statue of a horse. Similarly, the Slovakia-born Texas-based painter Katarina Janeckova, portrays a certain implicit depth through a visual childlike facade. The ubiquitous playfulness, often featuring personified animals as well as animal/human interaction is irresistibly conveyed through bright colours like an intimate visual fairytale - holding snakes whilst drinking red wine shouldn't look innocent, yet somehow, it really does.

Jay Miriam is a New York born and based painter, who's work emanates a special breed of jovial confidence. Her work is painted directly from memory, with the female figures that constitute her paintings inviting you into their world via a series of friendly yet assertive strokes, depicting a wholesome truth with a mystical corium. She has had work exhibited in Europe, US, Canada & Australia, and now Tanning Girls shall make it's Dublin debut. The diversity of responses, which are elicited by redness is not only exemplified on a case-by-case subject basis, but also by the range of medium which will feature in the exhibition.

Maser, the Dublin based street artist who has been receiving critical acclaim for his politically energised murals, will also be exhibiting his spray paint 'redsponse' Together, as well as two original works from Decoy, another Dublin-born street artist who has been making waves on the Irish Street Art scene.

Red-ness-ness? The Concept

Rednessness is a ‘double predicate’. In logic and language, a predicate can be loosely defined as the attribution of traits of a specific subject, to produce a meaningful sentence. If we are to state ‘the apple is red’, we can restructure the sentence to say that ‘the apple has redness’. For the pupose of this exhibition, the artists are responding to redness. They are producing red responses in the form of visual art. Each response is unique, elicited by redness as they see it. As the spectator comes to view the art, we can say that they are responding to redness-ness - a red property of something, inspired by, and built upon, a red property of something else entirely.
