Summer of exhibitions ahead at the Custom House

Alison Pilkington’s show Between One Thing and Another brings together work from the first year of her practice based PhD at National College Art and Design Dublin. The exhibition will run until June 13 at the Custom House studio. Her work is centred around how imagery in painting can be presented in such a way that viewers must reconstruct it themselves in order for it to make sense.

Leading on from this she examines the various forms of artifice that an artist may employ in order to bring about a genuine emotional response. One that may jolt us from our constant distracted complacency, surrounded as we are by a rapid bombardment of imagery. She hopes that painting has unique qualities that require slow, routine, and ‘active’ looking that lead to an appreciation that has been ‘learned’ from the painting rather than merely ‘seen’.
