'Design for Plate'
An Exhibition of Drawings by Ronan Smith
From Tuesday 25th May to Saturday 5th June 2004
Signal Arts Centre is showing the first solo show by artist Ronan Smith.
Ronan, a recent graduate from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology, has exhibited in the group exhibition 'Platform'- Concourse Gallery, Dun Laoghaire in December 2003 and 'Iontas' – small works exhibition in Limerick and Sligo during September 2003.
Ronan's work consists of acrylic drawings on newsprint. He says, 'The images are figurative and are of a floral authority. They describe various original designs and each drawing's characteristic is ingenuously distinct from the others.' The work is presented as, 'designs for plates', they are seen as a stage of process in the production of an 'Art/Craft Object'.
The work attempts to question the formulised aesthetics of decoration through observation.
Opening Reception: Thursday 27th May 7-9pm
