in Ballinglen Gallery
Still, a solo exhibition of work by Kate MacDonagh will run
until April 20th 2022 at The Ballinglen Gallery, Main Street,
Ballycastle, Co. Mayo F26 X5N3.
MacDonagh is an abstract artist whose work explores dualities
of light and dark, scale and ephemerality, stillness and movement,
the spectral and the material. Since spending time in Japan
throughout the last six years, Kate's primary focus is on
water-based woodcut (Mokuhanga) and watercolour painting.
This exhibition includes work made while on her first residency
at Ballinglen in 2021.
‘This abstract image contains something deeply human, an expression
of energy existing beyond the surface. It seems both static
and full of motion, like a living presence.' – Hugo Hamilton
