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.
