MATT CONNORS, St Carthage Hall, Lismore
Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to announce Invert, a solo exhibition of new work by painter Matt Connors.
Abstracted by colour, Connors’ paintings and drawings are created through a process of observation and invention, layering and re-working forms extracted from his environment. Details are seized upon, drafted and re-worked; marks accumulated through time spent in his studio become integral to the work. Through this process, surfaces register each moment in their creation, to form a material record of immaterial thought and ideas.
For St Carthage Hall, Connors has responded to the function and features of the building – the shape of the windows and vaulted ceiling – to create a series of paintings on paper made in direct reaction to the room. The result is a thoughtful and considered series which stands as a unique development in Connors’ practice.
