Linda Ruttelynck: Sentinels
Taylor Galleries is delighted to present Sentinels, an exhibition of recent photographs by Flemish artist Linda Ruttelynck. The exhibition is her second with the gallery.
Although based in Antwerp, Ruttelynck has visited and worked in the landscape of North Mayo since 1997 and her current practice has evolved from her relationship with the coastline around Carrowteige, north-west of Ballina.
This new body of work, presented as a series of digital prints, singles stray objects found on the Mayo shoreline out of space and time for closer inspection. Seaweed-covered rocks, an old white bag and a length of wire mesh assume the significance of totems, stolidly holding their ground at the water’s edge, seemingly impervious to the actions of the tide. In several pieces the scale of the subjects is uncertain – are they pebbles or sea-stacks? – and the images teeter alongside close-ups of rippling waves and seascapes.
Linda Ruttelynck teaches drawing and graphics at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. She has shown her work at numerous venues across Europe and North America. In addition to being included in various private collections her work is also represented in the public collections of the Belgian State; Province of Antwerp; the Prentenkabinet and the Mercatorcollection Antwerp; Boyle Civic Collection; OPW / State Art Collection; Ballinglen Arts Foundation; and Portland Art Museum, Oregan, USA.
