Emma Hayes, Sarah O’Brien, Liliane Puthod and Sven Sandberg: Wish Me a Wonder | Saturday 11 May  – Sunday 30 June 2019 | Garter Lane Arts Centre

Emma Hayes graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2018. Her work is in both public and private collections, including OPW.

Hayes’s works are informed by her immediate surroundings, internalised experiences and childhood memories. The process of how Hayes makes a picture is important to her. Both the process of making a picture and the action of applying the paint informs her work. Hayes uses gestural marks, confident, minimal strokes and colours of various opacities and translucencies to convey personal attachments and anxieties based around home life.

Sarah O’ Brien lives and works in Cork, Ireland. She received her MFA Painting from NCAD in 2007.

Sarah’s paintings interrogate materiality and the physical attachment we have with real stuff in the every-day life. The visceral, slimy quality of the paint along with the biomorphic forms, everyday props and colour palette affirm the sensuous and the tactile imbedded in material presence. Words, word play and free association inform the literal references in some of the paintings. Furthermore, the use of clothing and textiles lends the paintings a kind of anthropomorphising quality.

Liliane Puthod is a French artist based in Dublin. Her work focuses around sculptural research into commodity fetishism, consumerism and industrial forms of production in the globalised world. Dealing with notions of multiplicity and flux within an object or image as it relates to serial production, Puthod’s work draws from the paradoxical relationship between forms and the material they are made of. Recent exhibitions include solo shows display only at Berlin Opticians Gallery, Dublin, The _____ Showroom of Lilian Cashman at Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, Symbol Symbol Symbol at Eight Gallery, Dublin and group show The existence of flamethrowers in your street, at 126 Gallery – Galway.

Sven Sandberg received his MFA from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin in 2016. He has participated in group shows in the United States and Ireland, including the 2016 RDS Visual Art Awards exhibition, where he was joint recipient of the R.C. Lewis-Crosby Award. He received one of the Arts Council’s Next Generation Artists Awards in 2018. His paintings are in public and private collections in Ireland and abroad. Sven Sandberg currently lives and works in the west of Ireland.W

Wish Me a Wonder is accompanied by an extensive Educational Programme offering opportunities for everyone from children to adults, beginners to those with a more in-depth knowledge of the arts.
