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. 

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