Porous Plane will include a range of work by artist Lennon (b.1947), from the 1970s to the present day such as Folded Unfolded (1972), 1/3/92B (1992) and a recent Al13 painting.

The Folded/Unfolded paintings first appeared in Lennon’s first solo exhibition at the Project, Dublin in 1970. They are paradoxes and were his most emphatic early response to his discovery, aged 12, of the Holocaust. He will make a Folded/Unfolded especially for the IMMA Galleries as part of this exhibition. The Al13 painting on aluminium is composed of five composites – each one a composite of brushstroke and surface. There are no verticals in the painting, instead the viewer is the vertical who completes the composition by standing still.
