12th September – 25th September 2016 “Three Ravens And Other Dreams….. ” Drawings and Paintings from Veronique Castellano Signal Art

unnamed-5

Signal Arts Centre is delighted to bring you an exhibition of drawings and paintings from French artist Veronique Castellanos.

“I am a French woman who has spent over 20 years in the West of Ireland, a mother of four, and a self-taught artist. I started painting in the early 2000s, however I cannot think back on a time in my life when I wasn’t holding a pencil and drawing!

My choice of subjects is as multi-faceted as I feel myself, and life, to be, and every new phase in my life has ushered in a different theme, or style. For example, as a painter, for many years I seemed to be particularly drawn to scenes depicting a lone female figure engaged in some ordinary, everyday activity, yet imbued with a degree of serenity and even contemplation. Someone helpfully pointed out to me that it must express a longing for peace and solitude at a time when motherhood was claiming most of my time… The subjects I choose can range from the seemingly mundane to the inexplicably fantastical.

What I create from imagination can find its source in some rather unlikely quarters. Some people see recognisable shapes in clouds… and so do I, in virtually anything. Patterns on a floorboard can open up a world to me, as would the swirls of soapy water snaking their way out into the plug hole…More often than not, though, trees will be my most reliable providers of inspiration. I like weaving these natural designs into intricate drawings, usually in black and white, ink or pencil. When I embark on one such drawing, I never know for sure where it’s going to take me. And the destination can be quite a surprising one… There is a surreal, dream-like quality to many of my drawings, hence the title: “Three Ravens and Other Dreams”…

As for painting, as I have no set technique, each piece is a challenge in itself and an opportunity to try something new! In this exhibition I aim to present as varied an assortment of what is meaningful to me, and of the different approaches I take, from copying to creating solely from imagination. I have tried to leave my comfort zone and let myself be led into new territories”.

The Sunflower and the Lion

‘When Rose, a circus girl, has her heart broken by a second clown, she decides to close her heart to broken relationships forever and marry her true self.

She buys a small second-hand photo frame, shaped like a sunflower for her 33rd birthday and chooses to fall in love with her own life, for better or for worse.

That very week, the doorway to adventure swings open and she meets Boris, an extraordinary stranger to fill the frame of the Sunflower. His giant heart will lead her on a journey to knowing the true meaning of romantic love at its most beautiful and tragic – and finally to the realisation of what a profound decision she
had made by committing to her own life at 33 and the gravity of the choices it would ultimately ask of her.’

With a background in theatre, my first visual arts exhibition will be inspired by this story, a one woman show I am writing and performing. I am very much looking forward to it – and might even do a little gig at the opening 🙂 Rose Lawless.

All welcome!

Last year’s “Best In Show”
“Drowning out the Imp of the Perverse” by Brian Manning

PRESS RELEASE

Fourth Annual “SIGNAL OPEN” Exhibition

SUBMISSION DATE: 22ND JULY 2016

€1,000 SIGNAL PRIZE TO “BEST IN SHOW”

Over the last 250 years ‘Open Submission’ exhibitions have become established as an essential element of Arts infrastructure. They act as one of the most accessible routes for artists to have their work seen by the public and are almost invariably amongst the stepping stones in an artist’s career.

When Joshua Reynolds established the Royal Academy (RA) in the 18th century, one of his goals was the establishment of an annual exhibition which would be “open” to all artists for submission. The first such exhibition took place in 1769 to great acclaim and has been run annually ever since.

In Ireland the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) did likewise and over the years others have developed such as E.V.A., Claremorris, Oireachtas, Living Art, Iontas etc. These exhibitions provide an opportunity for artists to come together as a community to show and sell their work and provide the public with an eclectic insight into what’s happening in the arts both locally and nationally.

The Signal Open Exhibition is now in its 4th year and has become an annual event in artists’ calendars. We have been delighted by the response and the quality of work submitted each year and we are very grateful to all of the artists for their support. We look forward to this years’ exhibition which runs from 2nd August –14th August 2016.
