Good Morning Mister Turner
Niall Naessens and J.M.W. Turner
1 - 31 January 2018
Print Gallery | Admission free
In 2018, the annual exhibition of Turner watercolours was complemented by etchings and drawings by Kerry-based master printmaker Niall Naessens. Inspired by Turner’s brilliant evocations of light and meteorological effects, Naessens work juxtaposes the awe-inspiring beauty of the landscape with contemporary and mundane aspects of today’s world, including electricity transformers and agricultural equipment such as muck-spreaders and tractors. A catalogue accompanied the exhibition.
Curator: Anne Hodge, National Gallery of Ireland
