Anna Bjerger, Oliver Comerford, Diana Copperwhite | Saturday 24 November  – Saturday 22 December 2012 | Kevin Kavanagh

Opening Reception Friday 23 November, 6 – 8pm

Kevin Kavanagh is pleased to present new paintings by Ann Bjerger(SWE), Oliver Comerford(IE) and Diana Copperwhite(IE).

“Anna Bjerger paints heartbreaking utopias from magazine clippings. Filled with breezy landscapes and loose limbed figures, her work evokes the summer vacation version of Matisse’s Cote d’Azur. Her pictures pit ordinary life against extraordinary memories; because those reminiscences are basically voyeuristic, her paintings capture a realm of the senses that is bittersweet as anything produced by the sensualist painter of Luxe, Calme et Volupte.” Christian Viveros- Faunes

“Oliver Comerford makes images that have something of the form of post-modern art-the flatness, the imitation in painting of the surface of the photograph-but he brings to them a humanity and a sense of social reality that go well beyond the conventions of form. He is above all, a realist, but working at a time when the border between reality and its reflections in art is always open.” Fintan O’Toole

“Diana Copperwhite constantly mentions a musical logic and a sense of musical notation and tonality as she describes the act of painting. But, on the other hand, she insists that she does not pre-stucture, that she allows one colour to suggest another, that the element of gesture and chance is essential as is the flash of insight and the swift ability then to structure it, to carry it out.” Colm Tóibín
