    Kate Beagan - The Virtue of Light

    The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition by Kate Beagan, entitled, The Virtue of Light. On Thursday, February 28th between 6-7.30pm on 24 South Frederick Street. “Light is a form of energy. The majority of us are aware that our primary light source is the sun, and we understand the concept of how the atmosphere is created, the way that light filters through it. If I could therefore relate to this common knowledge, then I can begin to create moments that are also eternal. If it is something that I can feel, then others may share the same experience of feeling. I understand this through my painting. I love the visual drama that a painting can provide. The contrast of light and darkness, apparent through both tone and colour, being the most powerful formulae to attract attention to the focal point. Every brush stroke and layer is present with a purpose to enhance, and shares a relationship with the rest of the painting. I live within the subjects that I paint, in the sense of having surrounded me for the majority of my life. They are timeless views, and my desire is for the work to portray a sense of purity, simplicity, honesty and absoluteness. “ Kate Beagan Following Kate’s successful sell out solo show in 2015 , we are thrilled to welcome her back for a much anticipated second Solo show, at The Doorway Gallery. Reception Details: Date: Thursday, February 28th Time: 6 – 7.30 pm Refreshments Served Gallery opening Hours: Monday – Saturday 10.30-6pm For more information : www.thedoorwaygallery.com view exhibition View Invite View Video

    The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition by Dave West, entitled, Diamonds and Rust

     

    On Thursday, April 4thbetween 6-7.30pm on 24 South Frederick Street.

     

    “The title of this show, borrowed from an old song by Joan Baez stuck in my mind as it encapsulated some of my themes and ideas running through my own work: aspects of beauty, nostalgia, memory and decay.

     

    Much of my recent work is executed ‘en Plein-air’ meaning that I paint directly from the subject (in all weathers!) It’s a process very much concerned with capturing mood - not just about a certain place but the interaction between the space, the artist, and the atmosphere.

     

    My subjects range from a long-abandoned pier on a windy grey October morning or exploring the relationship between the beautiful pink streetlights of early dusk and a dilapidated urban scene.

     

    The still life paintings feature a variety of objects, some have a very personal story behind them and others are found objects with stories of their own to tell. A typical still-life arrangements could be an arrangement of small jewel like

    pieces of beach glass, some of them recently smashed against the rocks after a raucous late night beach party or a vivid piece of Bristol blue glass churning around in the ocean for decades. I add a further layer and narrative to their ‘stories’ by arranging them into compositions and painting them.” Dave West

    ‘Blue Moon’

     

    An exhibition of Paintings

    by Lucy Doyle

     

    May 2nd – 30th

     

    The Doorway Gallery, 24 South Frederick St, Dublin 2.

     

     

     

    The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition by Lucy Doyle, entitled, Blue Moon, on Thursday, May 2nd between 6-7.30pm on 24 South Frederick Street.

     

    ‘Blue Moon’ represents a year in my life.  I started work on these paintings late in 2017, concluding the final one by the end of 2018.

     

    The subject matter of my work is a reflection of my life in rural County Wicklow with my family, friends and animals. I let an idea for a painting slowly evolve in an open and organic way; letting it gradually filter through into my consciousness, where it gains momentum, until finally emerging as a complete idea for a painting.  All this must happen before I can start on the practicalities of reproducing it into paint on canvas. In this way I can paint something that has its origins in something so abstract as a feeling, mood or sense of place; a painting that is intensely personal and authentic to me.

     

    The moon is such an integral and romantic part of all our lives, full of mystery and significance and 2018 was a special year.  Two full moons in the months of January and March, two blue moons, a super moon and two total lunar eclipses.  I have always been drawn to moonscapes for the mood and colour palette it inspires.  So, I had no hesitation in naming this recent collection, Blue Moon, after one of my large canvases of the same name.

     

    Flower paintings are always a large part of my repertoire, and this year is no exception.  However, a cold and wintery spring in 2018 meant a very slow start to my usual flower painting season, with my dahlias only looking their best in September /October. 

     

    Family events also feature highly in my paintings, after all my daughters have always been, and continue to be, my muses.   This means that my paintings have followed them though their lives and now, their growing families.  This also includes their pets, which explains the sudden appearance in my work of a rather beautiful ruby Cavalier Spaniel named Crumble who spent the summer impacting his charisma and boundless energy on us and everything in his wake.

    I hope this goes some way to explain how and why I paint what I paint.

     

    However, what I have ultimately set out to achieve in my lifetime, is to persue the complex journey of a colourist and picture-maker; continuing to challenge and explore the endless permutations and possibilities of what makes for me, a good and enduring life-enhancing painting.  That is why each painting is unique, representing a moment in my life.

     

    I would like to extend a big thank you to all of you that continue to support, follow and enjoy my work, sharing this visual journey with me, and ultimately helping to complete the life cycle of each painting, which are after all to be enjoyed and looked at. .” Lucy Doyle
