David Quinn: undersong
In Conversation: 1pm, Thursday 23 November 2017 • David Quinn and editor, critic and broadcaster Niall MacMonagle. No booking required, all welcome.
Taylor Galleries is proud to present undersong, an exhibition of new paintings by David Quinn.
“Each painting is a unit, both unique and part of a greater whole: words in a sentence, notes in a tune, hours in a day. At first glance they appear to be simple works, minimal and understated, but look again. Focus on the edges, see the layers built up like strata in sedimentary rock. Each layer is a page, a painting that Quinn has stuck down, studied, added to and covered up.
Working on several paintings at once, Quinn considers them as markers of time. They are abstract and yet, they represent time worked and time spent in contemplation. Another definition of abstract – a summary of the contents of a book, article, or speech – is also relevant. The finished paintings are summaries of the process of their creation: concentrated forms or essences.”
