Photography Exhibition by Jane Talbot
From Wednesday 18th March to Sunday 29th March 2009
Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present this collection of work by artist Jane Talbot. Jane is a Donegal native and resides in Galway. She came to Galway in 1989 to work with Macnas community art and theatre company and after ten years with the company she left to freelance as a stage manager, artist and photographer. Her work in visual art and theatre encompasses video, photography, installation and community art as well as conventional theatre and performance art. She has showcased her work in many exhibitions and her work is included in a number of private and public collections including that of Galway City Council, University College Hospital, Galway and National University Ireland, Galway. She is a member of Visual Artists Ireland and G126.
The work for this exhibition concerns taking a fresh look at the everyday plants around us. From the mastery of design that makes the humble buttercup to the swirling complexity at the heart of a sunflower. The 37 varieties of flora in this exhibition all grow in the west of Ireland and each are examined with microscopic intensity, exposing the vivid sensuality and voluptuous abundance of nature. All the exhibited images are taken outdoors in natural light and are straight shots without any digital manipulation.
Opening Reception: Friday 20th March 7-9pm
