“Conditional”  Culturebox. Templebar

This group show by Cólín Rush, Elizabeth Archbold and Lorraine Walsh officially opens Thursday 7 March in The Culture Box, Temple Bar, as part of First Thursdays Dublin and will run until 28 March.

The work by Cóilín Rush is referencing a desired condition of insulation. The conditions that keep one protected from the external environment and yet conversely trapped. The paintings themselves have been painted and repainted and covered again. Outlandish expressions that then seem to constitute mistakes are covered up with a monotone and in this way I am allowed to live and can be kept in a stasis. Which like all things is conditional.
