From Tuesday 22nd November to Saturday 3rd December 2005
Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present Aratoi*, an exhibition of recent works by Wicklow artist Kate Minnock.
Kate's paintings and recent exploration of mono-prints are concerned with the fragility of the natural environment. Kate's work focuses on the structural correlations between forms found in lichens and other plants and animals, in particular reindeer antlers. Intrigued by recurring patterns in nature, her new body of work aims to draw attention to these subtle and delicate minutiae.
Kate graduated from the National College of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Art (Painting) in 2003. Since then she has had several exhibitions in Ireland and has recently exhibited work in New Zealand. In January of this year Kate received a 'Travel and Mobility Award' from the Arts Council of Ireland to part-fund her three month residency at New Pacific Studio, New Zealand. This exhibition, Kate's second solo show, brings together the ideas and works made while in New Zealand and during her residency last year at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Co. Monaghan.
* Aratoi is a Maori word meaning 'pathways to art'
Opening Reception: Friday 25th November 7-9pm
