Liminal | Into The Matrix
Runs from August 31st – September 13th
Mixed media exhibition by Liminal
Signal Arts Centre is delighted to open a unique exhibition by Liminal, a Wicklow based group of artists; Fabienne Herbert, Nessa McCormack, Anne Walsh and Christine Theobald.
‘Into the Matrix’, which the artists each embraced and interpreted in their own individual styles and media speaks to them collectively of pattern, movement, texture, structure, connection, intrigue, and the intuitive.
The body of work in this exhibition ranges from felted art pieces by Anne “that bear witness to mysterious underworlds, where the slow but powerful action of water and minerals creates natural art works” to acrylic paintings by Nessa “as an interpretation of observed micro elements in nature expressed through vibrant colour, abstract marks and simplified compositions”.
Fabienne explains her printmaking, natural dyeing and thread work as “an exploration of the relationship between repetition, pattern and space, both in natural and manmade worlds, and how it impacts our behaviour.” Christine pushes the technique of wet felting into abstraction, in which she “seeks to make visible a perception of colour, contrast and geometric elements observed from nature.”
Liminal’s four artists met through their shared love of fibre arts. Committed to deepening their art practice, they came together to find strength in working collaboratively and innovatively. Sharing an understanding of what it means to seek a sense of place in what has become their adopted county Liminal represents their experiences of occupying ‘spaces in between’.
‘Into the Matrix’ exhibition runs from August 31st – September 13th in Signal Arts Centre, Bray
