John Cronin: Warme Nights, Sweete Dewes, Fat Grounde, And Misty Mornings  2017  Oil on Canvas 41 x 61cms | John Cronin: Warme Nights, Sweete Dewes, Fat Grounde and Misty Mornings | Saturday 28 October  – Saturday 9 December 2017 | Green on Red Gallery

The Green On Red Gallery is delighted to announce John Cronin’s exhibition of new paintings Warme Nights, Fat Grounde, Sweete Dewes, And Misty Mornings.  This is the artist’s first solo exhibition since his very successful solo shows in VOLTA New York in March 2017 and his first solo survey exhibition, ZXX, in the Royal Hibernian Academy Gallery, Dublin 2, in 2016.

In an exciting departure for the artist Warme Nights, Fat Grounde,… sees the artist paint in oil on the softer surface of canvas and, in so doing, avails of the fabric’s warp and weft with more sonorous results.  Momentary glimpses of the textured panel beneath abruptly concede to fronts of Cronin’s best painting.   He makes full use of the possibilities of soaking, bleeding and leaking in the movement of the paint, dragged and scraped across the smaller more intimate panels.

The move away from the sheer, sharp aluminium surface and a palette more consistent with the computer age, seems in sympathy with a shift to darker hues and a more reflective mood.  Cronin says :

When I started mulling over “Warm Nights, Sweete Dewes, Fat Grounde, And Misty Mornings” my preoccupations were with Loss in the modern world, loss of time, privacy, identity and sense of reality. Unfortunately, personal loss suffocated these thoughts and “Warm Nights, Sweete Dewes, Fat Grounde, And Misty Mornings”became a  different beast.

…Sometimes a softly spoken word has more effect.

Warme Nights, Fat Grounde, Sweete Dewes, And Misty Mornings is the 16th C. description of the ideal time to harvest saffron, an action that is achievable by the human hand alone.

More extended opening times will be announced for Dublin Gallery Weekend, 2017.

Green On Red Gallery will participate in VUE artfair ( November 2 – 5, 2017 at the RHA Gallery, Ely Place, Dublin 2 ) with new works by Alan Butler, Damien Flood, Niamh McCann and others.
