ART Cather­ine Greene

Am­bi­tious, al­le­gor­i­cal bronze fig­u­ra­tive sculp­tures. The Assem­bly Rooms, City House, 58 South Wil­liam St, Dublin Un­til Oc­to­ber 29 cather­ine­greene.com Cather­ine Greene’s ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes just three works, but each is a sub­stan­tial bronze com­pos­ite, one with five in­di­vid­ual fig­ures, the oth­ers with two each (right).

That set him off on a se­ries of 3D paint­ings – or 2D sculp­tures – based on the wooden forms. Now, af­ter sev­eral years paint­ing on the fast, slip­pery sur­face of alu­minium pan­els, he re­turned to his store of sal­vaged wood, a much slower sur­face, to see if it still pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion. It does, and this show in­cludes both alu­minium and wood-based works. AD
