Exhibition catalogue Painting through its poetical emotions, 2018.
Painting through its poetical emotion, both the exhibitions and the editorial project, attempts to disclose the causes and motivations of this innate pictorial process which has possible similarities with modernist Irish literature tradition and its stream of consciousness. This narrative technique uses the free representation of a person’s thoughts as they appear in the mind, before being reorganised logically in sentences, just as it happens in abstract painting where, instead of words, the artist freely chooses the colours and shapes to use on the pictorial surface following freely his/her own abstraction of thought.
In Irish contemporary art there is a constant enrichment of abstract artistic practice aimed to the detriment of the subject, in contrast to a well-established figurative tradition. It follows a greater relevance in the observation of the creative process, ascribable to the temporal sphere for its immanence, rather than to an interest only addressed to the final artistic product.
