An exhibition of recent paintings by Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh opens at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Friday, May 4, at 7.30pm. Sinéad's paintings are, according to art critic Aidan Dunne, “poised between austerity and luxuriance. Structurally they are often spare and concise, featuring simplified geometric motifs, but their surfaces are luscious, consisting of thick coats of rich oil pigment, beautifully textured.” Her practice explores the liminal space between object and form, and within their expressive eloquence they also explore the act of painting itself. Sinéad is based in Dublin. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is included in many public collections, including Contemporary Irish Arts Society, Arts Council of Ireland, and the OPW. Sinéad will officially open her show at the Linenhall on Friday, May 4 at 7.30pm, when there will be a chance to preview the work, meet the artist, and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine. All welcome. The exhibition runs until Saturday May 26.
