Fiona McIntyre: Dreaming The Land
May 26, 2022 - October 1, 2022
Price: With admission
In Dreaming The Land, Fiona McIntyre expresses an imaged landscape inspired by a synergy of objects and place. Through a series of successive mini-residencies, the painter, draftsperson and printmaker has conjured a substantial and extraordinary body of new artwork which is presented in the Library of 17th century Rodd Court.
McIntyre’s art is underpinned by drawing. The artist spent short winter days engaged with the immediate location and flora of The Rodd, drawing at the river or in Rodd Woods. If the weather was too unkind, she retreated indoors to focus on strange and fantastical artefacts such as an Elephant skull from Nolan’s archive.
New paintings are infused with the dynamics of the weather and light in this border hinterland and also with Nolan’s unique vision - strange perspectives are at play. Alongside drawings and paintings, the exhibition includes new etchings and wonderful examples of the artist’s sketchbooks which are an important part of McIntyre’s making process.
