Double Vision
A joint exhibition of Prints and Paintings
by Niamh Moran and Bob Lynn

Sunday 11th May to Friday 30th May
Riverbank Arts Centre

Niamh Moran and Bob Lynn will be the next two artists to be featured at the Riverbank Arts Centre for the month of May. The exhibition, entitled Double Vision, will be officially opened on Sunday 11th May at 3.00pm. Niamh will be showing in the Upper Gallery and Bob will be exhibiting in the McKenna Gallery.

After a very successful month as Artist-in-Residence at the Riverbank Arts Centre last month, we will now see the fruits of Niamh’s labour. In conjunction with painter, Bob Lynn (who also works at the Leinster Printmaking Studio), they will fill the Riverbank Galleries with their very different styles of work.

Niamh, from Naas, who works predominantly as a printmaker, graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 2001. She is now a member of the Leinster Printmaking Studio in Clane, Co Kildare and has shown her work all over Ireland. In 2002 Niamh received an award for ‘Most Promising Emerging Artist’ at the Dunlavin Arts Festival. Her prints are a window into a world of dreams. She herself describes her work as fantastical, where mythical creatures and magical places exist. She uses the print technique of collograph drypoints (a drawing is incised into cardboard using a sharp point and then built up in layers using media such as acrylic, carborundum and other objects). Once the printing is done she then hand paints the images using matt solid blocks of colour.

Bob Lynn, born in Scotland, and now living in Wicklow, has travelled, studied and worked in London and Poland. Originally a graduate of the Edinburgh College of Art, Bob was until last year the chairman of Éigse and is the curator of this year’s show. RTÉ have also featured Bob on The Arts Show. Among other talents, Bob has tutored in the Burren Painting Centre and also in Italy. He mainly paints in oils, using vibrant strong colours to convey his abstract figures and landscapes. Along with his broad-brush strokes and pulsating colours he evokes space and haziness on to the canvas.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Monday 12th May until Friday 30th May 2003, and will be on view in both galleries.

Gallery opening hours are Monday to Saturday 10am to 1pm, and 2pm to 5pm.
