Paul Mac Cormaic: On the Road
Opening Reception Tuesday 12 March at 7:30pm
This collection of paintings is concerned with aspects of life on the road and has been six years in the making.
On the Road is about the visual impact of road building in the last twenty years. The exhibition is filled with images of the new, and what has been discarded, and each tells a story of rapid change and the adaptations ordinary people have to make. There are abandoned vehicles, obsolete and rusting away as well as baroque scenes of high drama around accidents and acts of vandalism.
It is quirks and observations such as these that On the Road is all about.
An ongoing project the paintings are derived from photographs in a realist style in varying sizes.
