Set the Twilight Reeling is an exhibition featuring the work of three painters: Derval Symes, Gary Robinson and Gerard McGourty. Each of them explore different aspects of the human condition in their work, but underpinning each of their oeuvres is a commitment to the aesthetic. Curator Sean Walsh describes the tone of each of three artists’ work as a ‘twilight aesthetic… they all capture beauty, in an end-of-the-evening kind of way’.
Derval Symes elegiac paintings draw inspiration from the peat bogs of South Roscommon, while Gerard McGourty’s expressionistic works are rooted in his instinctive and natural grasp of composition, harmony and balance. Gary Robinson creates autumnal, earthy pictures with a stark arresting quality.
