John Cullen - Emotional Fish
VISUAL ART: GALLERY Friday 2nd - Saturday 24th March
An exhibition of recent paintings in acrylic, oil and industrial paints, by Sligo artist John Cullen. John explains: "My current body of work comprises paintings relating to fish. Rather than illustrating the fish, I use an image of a fish as a template in which to explore the form, colour, texture and shape of these otherworldly creatures, their sliminess, scaliness, fleshy boniness. The fish I paint are also visual metaphors for emotional states." John graduated from Sligo IT in 2009. He has exhibited in a number of group shows around Ireland. This is his third solo exhibition.
Official opening on Friday 2nd March at 7.30pm. All welcome.
