'On the Shoulders of Giants'

An Exhibition of Paintings and Sculptures by Jim Mullins

From Tuesday 27th March to Saturday 7th April 2001

Signal Arts Centre will host an exhibition by Jim Mullins from March 27th to April 7th. Jim has lived in Bray for seven years and is originally from East Cork, but it was in London that he developed an interest in fine art while visiting the many museums and galleries there. His appreciation for the paintings of Jackson Pollock, in particular, has had an influence on his work, according to Jim.

Jim works with three dimensional materials from the building trade, and uses paint to draw out the intrinsic patterns and textures of the material. As one moves through his work the images shift and change, giving the observer a different perspective, depending on where one is standing. His appreciation for the inherent beauty in everyday materials gives his work a unique style.

He has had several solo shows in Allied Irish Banks in Midleton, as well as in South Dublin County Council Buildings and The Davis Gallery in Dublin. His work has also been selected for An Oireachtas group exhibition at the Guinness Hop Store.

Pattern, colour, flow and change - these are the elements Jim uses to communicate his faith in the ever changing harmony and wholeness of life.

Opening Reception: Tuesday 27th March 7-9pm
