Louise Neiland: Landfall
Opening Reception Thursday 13 June, 6 – 8pm
Taylor Galleries is delighted to present Landfall, an exhibition of new paintings by Dublin-based artist Louise Neiland which opens at the gallery with a private view on Thursday 13 June 2013 from 6 to 8pm. The exhibition is Neiland’s first solo show with the gallery, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
Landfall is the moment in time when a storm reaches the coast from the ocean and breaks over land.
It is difficult to predict an exact time when this will happen. When it does occur, the event is marked by a slight shift, a momentary darkness, a flux, a space where everything is motionless, and yet time passes.
A split second, a brief moment in time, and what was there before is gone. Its tangible presence has become an image or a sensation in our recollection.
We can recall points in time in the sequence of events, when they occur; their duration; their after-effects. Gradually, memory becomes intertwined with the present, giving us both real and imagined markers in our landscape.
Born in Dublin, Louise Neiland studied at Camberwell College of Art, London and later at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin from where she received a BA and MFA in Fine Art (Painting) in 1991 and 2008 respectively. She has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions around Ireland and been the recipient of various bursaries and awards. Neiland’s work is represented in both private and corporate collections and her commissioned work includes a piece on permanent display in Dublinia in Christchurch, Dublin.
