This winter, Taylor Galleries of Kildare Street, Dublin presents Martin Gale’s fifteenth solo exhibition consisting of new paintings, both oils and watercolours. Responding to the contemporary Irish landscape, his work offers an arresting and uneasy commentary on rural Ireland, where figures seem absorbed by something unseen. With an edge derived from the psychological tension implicit in many of his works, his realist style is meticulously detailed in execution. This exhibition marks forty years since Gale’s first solo exhibition in Bruce Arnold’s Neptune Gallery.
