KATE SCRATCHES SURFACE IN BRAY
BRAY native Kate Murtagh Sheridan has brought her work home to Signal Arts Centre. Her exhibition ‘Scratching the Surface’ had its launch night at the gallery last Friday evening.
The exhibition features frescoes of a great number of well-known parts of Bray.
Kate is a freelance visual artist and art educator originally from Bray, now living in Leitrim. She specialises in ceramics and plasterwork.
Kate takes the viewer on a journey behind the scenes. She draws their attention to the hidden gems around territory that she is very familiar with; Bray and Dublin. Kate paints hidden compositions that catch her eye because of their beauty, historical past and interesting aspects. It is the overlooked details that she is attracted to; the micro textures and forms that enliven the wider landscape. She paints from memory as well as from photographs onto plaster using techniques she has adapted from her work in ceramics.
The exhibition will continue at Signal until Sunday, December 9.
