John Shinnors

14 February–5 April 2003

First exhibited at and curated by Limerick City Gallery, Crawford Municipal Art Gallery is now delighted to present this major exhibition of new work by Limerick-born artist, John Shinnors.

John Shinnors has selected three broad subject themes for this exhibition, which are the Shannon River -Estuary in Snow, the ancient site of Dun Aengus and the Scarecrow. "Shinnors clearly represents these subject themes, but does not refer to their literal-visual details in a linear, sequential, connected display of a 'realistic' technique. Rather, he assembles a mosaic of traces, clues and hints that refer to the subject themes."
Paul M O'Reilly, in John Shinnors: New Work Considered, July 2002

Studies in watercolour on paper accompany each series of large-scale works on stretched cotton or linen. The new paintings employ rich chiaroscuro qualities and dramatic contrasts, yet a subtlety of colour is retained throughout.

Opening hours: Monday - Saturday 10am-5pm
(Admission Free). Full wheelchair access.
