JOUR­NEY INTO LIGHT

The Irish Times Magazine - - FRONTLINES - Gemma Tip­ton

Un­less you’re lucky enough to live there, Sk­ib­bereen makes for some pretty per­fect sum­mer­time days away; and Uillinn, the West Cork Arts Cen­tre, is a great spot to stop while you’re about it. Their cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion, just opened, show­cases the work of Wil­liam Crozier, who fell in love with the area. A great deal of his vi­brant ex­cit­ing land­scapes ( won­der­ful semi- ab­stracts in which you can recog­nise some things and imag­ine oth­ers) were painted around his west Cork home. Uillinn’s show is the first part of a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion of the artist, who died in 2011. Imma will be host­ing the sec­ond part, go­ing back to his post­war work, and it will be fas­ci­nat­ing to see the early dark­ness giv­ing away to the ev­i­dent bright plea­sures Crozier took in the glo­ries of the world around him. Uillinn un­til Au­gust 31st, and Imma Oc­to­ber 12th to April 8th, 2018. west­corkarts­cen­tre. com / imma. ie
