These works stem from two residencies (2005,2006) in The Factory,
Krems, Lower Austria.
Although travel and places have become an undeniable influence in the
work,it is not the reason for painting. It is often about the
experience of making a picture without relying on the usual devices and
props,they have their own sense of impermanence.
Beginning in anticipation that something worthwhile will
emerge,painting is about taking that chance,and what is incorporated in
the surface is more important that surface alone.
The process of discovery,editing and adding something new are
authenticated,however unfamiliar. Relinquishing the remnants of
pictures past,which may have been abundant originally,
are reduced to essences. The paintings employ formal gestures ,away
from particular subjects, to edges,borders.Colour is not of primary
concern,and results and conclusions can be
circumstantial. Everything can feed the
work,people,location,events,past experiences,all play some part. An
autobiographical journey,but not confessional one.

FAITH is a body of work by artist Jackie Nickerson - a Co. Louth based artist - selected from two and a half years photographing the religious of Ireland and their interior and exterior spaces.
It is an exciting and timely exhibition and captures the Catholic Church in Ireland at a period of great change.
There are images of the new modern spaces inhabited by and worked in by the religious and the crumbling grand building of old. There are intimate details of their everyday lives – such as ‘Place setting’ and ‘Cloaks’, overviews of their activities such as ‘Green room’ and ‘Hallway’, and quirky side views such as ‘Waste’ which is an image of the leftover paper thin bread of the Eucharist, after the host has been cut out, lying in a bin. There are also many portraits including the Fra Angelico-like portraits of the Glenstall monks.
Her portrait of Sister Patrice has been selected for The Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition 2006 at The National Portrait Gallery, London, to run from 8th November to 18th February.
Jackie is represented in New York by The Jack Shainman Gallery and has been selected by Octavo Zaya for the Israel biennale in 2007.
A catalogue with an essay by Kevin Moore has been published to accompany the exhibition. For further information please contact the gallery.
Will run from 18th August to 10th September
New Works is an exhibition of new drawings and paintings by Helen Farrell. Helen is best known for her figure studies but the figure is absent from these latest works.
Drawing and the process of drawing are the underlying elements linking
this new body of work. Despite using non-figurative imagery, highly
worked and reworked surfaces suggest the ghostly presence/emergence of
the figure and hint at the transient nature of being human.
Fractured forms within the works add to the overall sense of
vulnerability present and muted and earthy tones in oil,
waterbased-crayon, chalk and pigment, create a rarified
palimpsest-like effect, relieved by discrete but vibrant touches of colour.
