New solo exhibition by Thomas Brezing, curated by Sharon Murphy

Our first new exhibition post-lockdown presents new works by Dublin based multi-disciplinary artist Thomas Brezing. Perhaps Our Awakening Is Our Deeper Dream is an exploration of human mortality made in the wake of the death of the artist’s mother.

It consists of works on paper – incorporating drawing, painting, print, poetic texts and collage – as well as four large artist books and an installation which quietly address fundamental existential questions: the transience, impermanence and fragile nature of our lives (and selves). The range of media and of modes of presentation reflects the artist’s interest in investigating different kinds of image-making and different ways of representing self, other, and the ties that bind us and which are loosed by death. This formal exploration mirrors the philosophical preoccupations captured in the exhibition’s title: the nature of consciousness, of reality itself.

The title image presents a central motif of the exhibition in which birds – creatures of both earth and sky – are emblems of grounded transcendence.

Thomas Brezing is a Dublin based multi-disciplinary artist. His choice and use of materials is often intuitive, the product of experiment and improvisation. He enjoys allowing the work evolve on its own terms so that over time it finds its own form and determines its finished state. Time, loss, memory, absence are abiding concerns, as is his investigation of the nature of identity and, for him, the umbilical connections between his ‘German past’ and his ‘Irish present’.

Sharon Murphy is an artist and curator based in Dublin. She has commissioned public art in a range of contexts and been curator-in-residence at Draíocht, Dublin 15 since 2017.
