Upcoming Solo Exhibition
A solo exhibition by visual artist Lauren Ciara McCullough located at the Georgian Gallery in Newtownards Townhall, Northern Ireland. Running from 31/08/23 to 23/09/23.
McCullough, a recent graduate of MFA Fine Art at Ulster University, is inspired by her surroundings. Her w aims to convey the very being of nature through the presentation of landscape as abstraction. 'Through Others Eyes' is inspired by her current practice and her recent residency at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in March 2023, supported by Ards and North Down Borough Council.
Speaking of her exhibition, Lauren says; “I have an eagerness to capture the ethereal nature of the Irish landscape which was ignited when I relocated to the countryside in Newtownards. My new surroundings drastically impacted my practice, from working plein-air, to just living and walking in the scenic beauty. My intention would be to connect with the local people through the exhibition, by the feeling that they are immersed by the sense of familiarity and view the perception of this land through my eyes and others. I will respond to a body of resource material which will be displayed alongside my work. This material will describe a space where the other felt a spiritual connection to this land."
