Two exhibitions opening in Cork this week, Patricia burns at Triskel Arts Centre and Peter Missing at Camden Palace Hotel.
The last in a series of nine exhibitions curated by guest curator John P. Quinlan at Triskel Arts Centre is Eastwards a solo exhibition by Patricia Burns. The exhibition opens at 6pm on Thursday 7 May and runs until May 30.
Patricia Burns is interested in the hidden narrative in overlooked or changing parts of the built landscape. Her paintings often focus on specific places, most notably the in-between spaces of suburbs and ring-roads.
Tomas McCarthy has said of her work that it “speaks to us from the twilight zone of remembrance and exile. Her haunting images are a technical triumph. The subject matter and the handling of it is unique and highly disciplined. Anyone who sees her work will be impressed by its uncompromising vision, its certainty of home-comings, its prodigious promise of a definition of home that transcends geography and crosses generations.”
Camden Palace Hotel presents the paintings of New York artist Peter Missing. The exhibition opens at 7pm on Thursday 7 May. The Missing Foundation featuring Florian Langmaack will also perform live and support will be provided by the Cork group The Sea of Okhotsk.
Peter Missing’s art is highly regarded in the United States of America & Europe (Particularly in Paris & Berlin) with his work on display & in the collections of many museums & institutions such as The Getty Institute in Los Angeles, The Guggenheim, The Whitney Museum of American Art & The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York and The Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
