Littoral Ground

Canal Richard Kingston c.1959 Oil on board

Until 17 November 2012

The exhibition brings together various interpretations by artists from Ireland and Great Britain of borders; from the quite literal borders between land and sea and county borders in Tim Goulding’s, The Field Trip *23 and the transitional border between day and night, Eric S. Patton, Dawn. To the use of line and colour and the spaces it creates seen in Naomi Boretz, Floating Landscape and contrasting materials from Paul Mosse’s, Untitled.

The selection started with the rarely seen delicate etchings by the artist Norman Ackroyd (b.1938) and his explorations of the Irish west coast landscape. A coastal border defined by the ever-changing weather.

This exhibition presents works from the Crawford Art Gallery’s permanent collection from the 20th and 21st Century.
