'The Goose Field'

An Exhibition of Paintings by Mary Duffy.

From Tuesday 20th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017

Signal Arts Centre is delighted to present an exhibition of paintings by Mary Duffy.

This series of paintings is based on what the artist sees every day: the field next door to her studio. Known as The Goose Field - because of the over wintering geese from the Arctic - this twenty acre field provides the artist with endless opportunities for contemplation as it changes throughout the day and is transformed throughout the seasons.

Mary writes: “While I have been painting for ten years now, I see myself at a point of transition. While still deeply engaged in landscape, circumstances have led me to try to work more from my memory of places, rather than directly on site.

This transformation to working from my studio has led me to try to tease out what exactly I am looking for. As a result of working more from memory, my paintings are becoming bigger and more abstract while still essentially landscapes. This shift comes from a deep desire not to just paint places or things, but rather to use the paint itself to express the essence of space and place, and my response to it. I am allowing the paint to lead me now as much as the landscape led me in the past.

Opening Reception: Friday 23rd June 7 - 9 pm

All Welcome!
