WOOD, AND objects weathered and shaped by marine environments, will be the focus of a fascinating new exhibition at the Galway Arts Centre, by a British artist who regularly works under all kinds of aliases.
KPAPLAK DONKER, featuring collage, paintings, kinetic wooden sculptures, and a site specific installation from Morley Hill, as well as the inaugural works from Spalla Gap, will be officially opened in the Galway Arts Centre, Dominick Street, on Friday February 22 at 6pm.
Morley Hill and Spalla Gap are both pseudonyms of the British born, County Kerry based artist, Nik Taylor, who described his work as "obsessive systematic pottering". Dazed and Confused magazine said it, "pushes the boundaries of structure and freedom".
Morley Hill is Taylor's exploration of structure and form through the use of wood, drawing, painting, collage, and sound [a work in this format is shown above]. The Spalla Gap project is inspired by items found on the shoreline; a combination of natural and manmade objects whose forms have been shaped, weathered, or altered by the actions of water, sand, and marine life.
KPAPLAK DONKER runs until March 22. Admission is free and all are welcome.
