Cork: Goulding’s Music

Cork: Goulding’s Music

The Lavit Gallery presents a solo exhibition of new work by Tim Goulding, drawn from his latest series, ‘Music’. Goulding has worked in series for many years, often spending three or four years on one subject. These collections can be radically different in both style and content, but always stay true as a response to what appears in his life, both visually and emotionally. Musical staves form the basis of these new works, giving structure to additional ‘voices’ and orchestration.
Tim Goulding: 22 October – 21 November

‘Gathered’, an exhibition of abstract still-life paintings by Liza Kavanagh, is on at the Leitrim Design House. Kavanagh captures her joy found in everyday objects on the kitchen dresser; ceramic bowls, earthenware jugs, patterned plates and vases, bowls of ripening fruit and seasonal flowers, in her vibrant, colourful and patterned work.
Liza Kavanagh: until 28 November

Austria: Domestic Optimism

Austria: Domestic Optimism

Emma Wolf-Haugh brings her performance piece ‘Domestic Optimism’ to the Grazer Kunstverein Art Gallery in Graz. The work draws on gender, colonialism, the Irish-born designer Eileen Gray and the lesbian experience to subvert historical legacy using vernacular language and aesthetics. Wolf-Haugh is a visual artist and educator and has been artist in residence at IMMA since July 2019. Weaving together her past experience in theatre, installation, performance, publishing and collaborative workshop techniques, she develops work from a queer/feminist perspective.
Emma Wolf-Haugh: 24 September – 20 November
