From Tuesday 18th January to Sunday 30th January 2011


Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present this new series of works by Fermanagh artist Helen McNulty. Helen began painting from an early age under the tutelage of her uncle Edward McNulty, a traditional artist from Fermanagh. She graduated from DeMontfort University, Leicester with a BA (Hons) in Performance Art and Arts Management.


Helen has exhibited her work in her native Fermanagh from the age of 17 and has had a series of Art Installation/Performance Exhibitions throughout England, as well as two solo shows in Leicester and Nottingham, group exhibitions at the Untied Arts Club, Dublin and self-led shows in her home. She has participated in the Flat Lake festival since its inception and has sold paintings to Film Director Kevin Allen.


Through images collected from snowfall in Ireland and on the fjords of Norway using sketches, video and photographs Helen has been studying the elements of snowfall that have the ability to change the mood of the onlooker.


The works in this exhibition explore the textures and habits of water in its frozen and snow form, how the light reflects and refracts on frozen landscapes and the myriad of colours held within. Sneachta will evoke responses in viewers both of the sense of expanse of thought and of the boxed in feelings that are to be found during the 'dreary' winter landscape.
