GARTER Lane Arts Centre is proud to announce, L’Armoire; an exhibition of painting, textiles and sculpture which will run from April 5 until May 16.

In L’Armoire, there is a dialogue between the inner and the outer worlds, the external reflecting the internal, a mirror in time. These works investigate the armour worn out into the world. Kathleen Delaney takes the image of a wardrobe merged and entwined with a living root system that serves to ground the object. In her series of drawing/collages she uses the written word along with a reworked image of a Chippendale press. Images of clothing appear in some of the pieces, where in others there are descriptions of clothing.

Entr’acte by Sarah Edmondson will also open on April 5 at 7pm as part of FOH Space series kindly sponsored by AIB Waterford. Entr’acte is an exhibition of new paintings inspired by the philosophical writings of Gaston Bachelard. Sarah’s work is an investigation into the narrative capacity of empty spaces. It explores the symbolic value of architectural structures and the ability of furniture to personify the inhabitants of a household or an interior setting. Continuing with this investigation, Entr’acte is a playful analysis of the relationship between theatre and painting, and the role of the set in the depiction of a story or a tale. Void of any actors these painted sets can still translate meaning; evoking a particular mood or atmosphere through subtle tonal variations.

Both exhibitions are open daily (Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 5.30pm). For more information see www.garterlane.ie.
