'World Without End'

An Exhibition by Barbara O'Meara

From Tuesday 19th June to Sunday 1st July 2007

Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present 'World Without End', an exhibition of new work by artist Barbara O'Meara.

Barbara will graduate this summer from NCAD with a BA in Fine Art. She has been studying Fine Art for 6 years and previously attended Bray Senior College where she studied Art, Ceramics & Design. Barbara has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in Ireland and Italy as well as producing commissioned work for Brook Lodge Hotel in Wicklow.

Barbara's recent work investigates the connection between the real and imaginary, This theme is inspired by her own identity and family history. Inspiration also comes from her strong feeling of connection and awareness of a common bond with people worldwide that have experienced similar connections in their lives.

Using different media has brought an element of chance to Barbara's work. The idea of 'letting go' of control is interwoven with the thought that perhaps life, fate and destiny are already beyond our control.

Barbara's main aim is to express the fragility of life and to capture the essence of her individual journey. She does this by showing symbolic figures or objects and also by exploring surfaces, layers and textures. Colour defines the mood of the pieces. The sombreness and indeed the joy of Barbara's work explore the fact that we as humans are linked as much through death as life.

Opening Reception: Thursday 21st June 7-9pm
