Transition Year Art Gallery Trip
On Monday,10th October 2016, Transition Years went on a trip to the Highlane Gallery, Laurence St, Drogheda, Co.Louth, where they viewed the following two exhibitions:
Some thing as a line: Taking its starting point from the small painting Miniature of the Artist's Hand by William Mulready in the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection,Some thing as a line is a group exhibition that looks at the spatial and temporal properties of line.
The show considers the ability of line to move from a representational mark to an autonomous entity in space and time. Each of the ten invited artists use line in a variety of forms, across a range of media,where line is used to engage with a sense of materials, of space and of time.Works in this exhibition show line being thought of and used in various ways including: as sculptural objects, as paintings of linear sculptures, as video work using line to measure landscapes, as mapping, as visualised data, and using line to trace and record real objects.
