Friday 13 September – Saturday 26 October 2019
Laura Mcmorrow: Explorers Yoho Glacier | Cut/Paste: Photomontage in Ireland | Friday 13 September  – Saturday 26 October 2019 | Source Arts Centre

Featuring works by Sean Hillen, Joe Lee, Laura McMorrow

Drawing on the rich tradition of photomontage as a means of creating new images and meaning from old, this exhibition incorporates pieces from three contemporary Irish artists working in this area. Photomontage methods of physically cutting and re-arranging images have undergone a transformation in the past three decades as digital technology has come to the fore and allowed artists to alter images in new ways. Sitting perhaps somewhat uneasily with traditional photomontage, digital design packages have expanded the ability of artists to arrange, scale, colourise and compose images.

Some artists have eschewed these new technologies and continue to work in the tradition of cutting and collaging from existing material. Others have incorporated some digital treatment within their work. This exhibition features three Irish Artists who work within this changing area of image-making: Laura McMorrow is a visual artist based in Leitrim; Joe Lee is an artist and film-maker living in Dublin and Sean Hillen is a native of Newry whose notable works include ‘The Troubles’ and ‘Irelantis’.

A workshop, gallery talk and a screening will take place during the course of this exhibition.
