Captured: Rich, rugged and fresh
Thu 7th September
Location: Goose Lane Gallery
‘Captured: Rich, rugged and fresh – the landscape of Ireland as depicted by three Belfast-based artists’ was a visual art exhibition of paintings and photography selected for their contemporary representation of Ireland’s landscape: seaside vistas of County Wexford, irregularities of a city, the overwhelming vividness and freshness of the colour green, the wilds of a raging Irish sea, the graffiti tagged walls of Belfast, a lush forest…
These artistic depictions conveyed the experience and memory of Ireland’s built and natural environments, the human interactions of past and present, and our ever changing earthly surroundings.
The three artists who showcased work were Esther O’Kelly, Jonny McEwen, and Neal Campbell, and the exhibition was curated by Sally O’Dowd. All four are members of Vault Artists Studios. This exhibition made public for the first time new art made in the Belfast Bankers studio.
