Alternative Entertainments presents a joint exhibition by Marie Hanlon and Margaret Tuffy. Kilkenny-born Hanlon exhibits a series of new paintings which have their starting point in arbitrary encounters: small details from the everyday environment selected for their expressive possibilities. The resultant paintings are at once formal and playful. The lines, dots, shapes and colours characteristic of the work have been generated from the source material but, through repeated use, are honed into a personal visual language.

Mayo-born Tuffy presents a multi-media exhibition, with work ranging from paintings, prints, sculpture and video. Her current work explores idea on the delicate balance between our every day existence and our conscious and unconscious awareness of reality. She has investigated ways of portraying breath and breathing, stating that “there is nothing that can call us faster into awareness of being human as having to pay attention to drawing breath”. In making these works, she has been challenged to play with the figures and objects in place and on surfaces, and by juxtaposing these against abstract backgrounds, her aim is to make compositions representing differing states of awareness.
