Little Lights, an exhibition of new works by artists David Begley and Hanneke
Van Ryswyk opens on Thursday 24th November at Pigyard Gallery, Wexford with a reception at 6pm.
Hanneke will be showing her latest series 'Cosmos'. These intimate works conjure up aerial views of otherworldly landscapes, in luminous pinks, earthy reds, and sorched blacks. Each work is painted on Tetra paks collected in Sweden when the artist worked there on a residency. Van Ryswk was selected for The RHA Annual Exhibition and Eigse, Carlow earlier this year and has had several highly successful shows in Ireland since moving here from Wales in 2011.
David will be showing new works in monotype. To make these works, black ink is rolled out on a perspex plate, drawing into, and wiped to find David's dramatic lights, then when the image is complete, a one off monotype print is hand pulled through an etching press. David's new monochromes have developed from his recent innovative work with charcoal animations.
All works are for sale at affordable prices in time for Christmas. Open daily until December 20.
