Beth Nagle: Clandestine | Curator’s Choice: Beth Nagle | Saturday 1 April – Sunday 30 April 2017 | Hunt Museum

Beth Nagle’s artwork explores the intricate links between life and death, light and darkness. She questions the space between the ‘seen’ and ‘unseen’.

The atmospheric painting Clandestine possesses an ‘other worldliness’ quality, heightened by her choice of palette, with its grey and melancholic tones. It is her response to recent revelations pertaining to the discovery of hundreds of human remains beneath the grounds of the mother and baby home in Tuam, Co. Galway. Her interpretation is intense, both in concept and in the making, using a visual language that is designed to evoke an empathetic response. The layering up and partial / permanent erasure, blurring and scraping of the painted surface, with trowels and sponges, depicts the notion of time and history and of revealing the world of the subterranean, sacred resting space of these human remains. She invites the viewer to engage with and enter into that space of what she describes as a conceptual excavation.
