Opening reception Friday, March 4 at 7pm, The Ballinglen Gallery, Main Street Ballycastle, Co. Mayo, F26 X5N3.
Kate 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.
