Our newest member Jason Kearney’s exhibition: Welcome To Heterotopia: Pasted Pixels Of Contemporary Collage opens April 24th

We are excited to have Jason Kearney join our new studio, his work is fantastic!

If you are in Dublin this Thursday hit up his fist solo exhibition; Welcome To Heterotopia: Pasted Pixels Of Contemporary Collage at the Twisted Pepper. It’s going to be great!

“The exhibition will be officially opened with a talk by Sean Hillen, without a doubt the most influential Irish artist that has worked with photomontage. 

Heterotopia is a concept in human geography elaborated by philosopher Michel Foucault to describe places and spaces that function in non-hegemonic conditions. These are spaces of otherness, which are neither here nor there, that are simultaneously physical and mental, such as the space of a phone call or the moment when you see yourself in the mirror.

Jason Kearney situates himself in the spectrum of contemporary collage by manipulating pixels over paste and photoshop over paper to create surreal digital collage.

Appropriating his pieces from a wide range of source material that spans movements, continents and centuries he uses and seduces the digital medium to juxtapose characters, objects and landscapes. In doing so, he creates narratives that the original artists would have never dreamed to have existed.”

This exhibition will run until May 31st

Dearest Facebookeens, (and internet worldeens!)

I’ve given myself a bit of a project and it’d be great if i could get as much help as possible from everyone out there in cyberschpace.

In a nutshell, what I’m looking to do is to get people to email or PM me a photograph of themselves, no particular angle or position, Hopefully I’ll get around one hundred or (hopefully) more. The plan then is to draw/ink/paint the submissions and have a exhibition in a few months time in aid of paying bills and things for A4 sounds in Harolds cross.

I’m going to spend 30 seconds on some, maybe an hour on others so hopefully there will be a fairly wide spectrum. Some of them might actually be alright, a lot of them will more than likely be dodgy as fuck. Buts that’s grand.

The only things to bear in mind are:
No crap selfies please.
No pictures of you scoring a goal for your local Under11’s team, taken by your dad.
you get the idea.

A picture you took especially for this project, sitting down, standing up, profile, whatever you think really.

It’d be great to hear from peeps..and it’d be totally shit if no one takes any notice of this at all so please drop me a line!

THANKS A MILL.

Matt
