Saturday 7 October, 2pm
Join artist David Quinn for an informal discussion of his painting process and work in his current exhibition, ‘white line series’, with editor, critic and broadcaster Niall MacMonagle at Solstice Arts Centre. No booking required, admission free.
David Quinn makes small, considered works on wood and paper. The ‘white line series’, on show in Solstice’s Gallery 1 until Saturday 13 October, is an exploration of line, space and surface. The lines of the title have been incised with an oil pencil or cutting tool into carefully prepared surfaces. Quinn then used a ruler to make the lines, so any deviation or variation in the line is a result of the uneven support or his unsteady hand.
David Quinn studied Visual Communications at DIT Mountjoy Square from 1989 to 1993 and has exhibited regularly since 1995. Recent exhibitions include Start Art Fair, Saatchi Gallery, London with Gibbons & Nicholas; ‘blank’, Fenderesky Gallery, Belfast (2016); ‘seam’ (2015) and ‘dunkelbunt’ (2014), Taylor Galleries, Dublin; and group shows ‘Small’, Purdy Hicks Gallery, London (2017) and ‘two birds / one stone’, Farmleigh Gallery, Dublin (2016). Public collections include Bank of Ireland; Hôtel de Crillon, Paris; Electric Ireland; OPW / State Art Collection; AIB Corporate Banking; Eaton Corporation; and the Morrison Hotel. He lives and works in Co. Wicklow.
