This is the New sound just like the Old sound
04 August to 29 August 2009
We are pleased to present the first solo exhibition at City Art Rooms by painter Brendan McGorry. Primarily self-taught, McGorry engages with references and allegories drawn from historical European paintings. Especially inspired by Italian masters of the Renaissance period, the narrative in McGorry's work is also concerned with his personal family biography. Generational stories are explored through fathers and sons where time becomes a cyclical event; the loss of a parent is balanced by the arrival of a new child. Recent paintings in oil and charcoal show stages of growth and maturity from boyhood to manhood, and this idea of development runs parallel to McGorry's lineage of artistic influences.
Further details to follow.
