The Luan Gallery is delighted to present a three man show for the months of May and June at Lua Gallery. Showcasing the works of three male artists from the Midlands region - Daniel Chester, Gary Robinson, and Paul Roy - this exhibition explores themes of consumption, conversation, an memory.
Featuring three distinct exhibitions of work, each artist occupies a solo space in the gallery. With Leitrim’s Daniel Chester allotted the River Gallery; Longford’s Gary Robinson taking residence in the Library Gallery; and Westmeath’s Paul Roy filling the New Gallery space, these exhibitions show a variety of works in mixed media.
Though innately different in style and approach, there are common threads throughout this three man show. Each artist looks at landscape, environment, and memory and the human experience of the same and offers unique responses to the themes.
A mixture of painting, photo-imaging, installation, and text all feature in this exhibition, altering the physical environment of the gallery spaces.
Aedín McGinn, assistant manager says: “We’re thrilled to launch this exhibition and present these three talented men here in Luan Gallery.
“There is often a lot of support available for emerging artists and established artists, and it is rare that mid-career artists are afforded the same opportunities so we are very happy to feature this show. The exhibition showcases three men of similar career stages working in very different ways but with a lot of thematic crossover. We strive to provide meaningful experiences to the visitor here at Luan Gallery and often the artworks on display simply act as vehicles of encouragement prompting visitors to discuss their own life experiences. The topic of ‘inherited’ memory in Paul Roy’s work and the examination of deteriorating rural landscapes in Daniel Chester’s work will each, no doubt, prompt conversation while the interactive element in Gary Robinson’s installation will invite audience engagement and further deepen the communicative power of art.”
The exhibition will officially launch on Friday May 1 at 6pm with a wine reception, and all are welcome to attend. The exhibition will run until June 28.
