Good Morning Mister Turner

Niall Naessens and J.M.W. Turner

1 - 31 January 2018
Print Gallery | Free admission

This year the annual exhibition of Turner watercolours will be 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 accompanies the exhibition. 

Curator: Anne Hodge, National Gallery of Ireland. 

VISITOR NOTICE: For anyone visiting the exhibition today (Tuesday 23 January), please be aware that there will be no lift access due to essential lift maintenance. We're working to get this fixed as soon as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.

 

SO Fine Art Editions is showing some related drawings by Niall Naessens to complement the exhibition. On view 5-31 January.
