Andrew Murphy: Circles in the Sky | Saturday 19 March  – Saturday 9 April 2016 | Wexford Arts Centre

A solo exhibition of painting • In association with Arts Ability, CUMAS New Ross

Andrew Murphy works on large-scale abstract compositions. Hisexpressive paintings feature vigorously applied layers of colour on colour, giving the works a great sense of depth and texture. His recurring circular motif creates drama, movement and becomes almost meditative on close observation. Moving between light and darkness, vibrant and muted tones, his work reflects a range of emotions; the artist’s expression remaining clearly visible in each. Working directly from his imagination, Andrew’s bold use of colour is complemented by his confident, expressive and gestural approach leading him to a natural conclusion with each painting.

Arts Ability is a partnership initiative between Wexford County Council, HSE South, The Arts Council and CUMAS, which aims at providing inclusive opportunities for people to Celebrate Creativity and develop their art practice in a professional manner. The programme is designed to facilitate the individual’s creative development and to encourage each participant to follow their personal projects. The initiative ensures that each participant has access to quality materials coupled with technical support geared towards the individual’s needs. CUMAS New Ross is committed to providing quality support to individuals with an intellectual disability through the under-pinning principle of “individualization towards a better life’. One Woman and Circles in the Sky offer a vibrant and exceptional insight into the work of two of these distinctive artists, and will fill both the upper and lower galleries of the Wexford Arts Centre.
