In the Roundness of Being

April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

VISUAL is pleased to present In the Roundness of Being, an exhibition by Irish artist Eilis O’Connell. O’Connell lives and works in Cork, Ireland, and has been an important figure in Irish sculpture since beginning to show work in the late 1970s. Anchored by a major new commission for VISUAL’s main gallery, In the Roundness of Being includes new and existing work from O’Connell’s studio in a variety of media, showcasing the ranges of scale and technique the artist works with.
The exhibition title is taken from a wall-based work of the same name included in the exhibition. Of the process of creating and titling the work, O’Connell writes:
“[The piece was] Originally carved out of high-density polystyrene then worked in plaster. I noticed that when I carve, my forms are more biomorphic, and I love the underlying geometry. The body’s movements kind of permeate the form and some kind of transference occurs.”

Admission Free
