G126 presents:


new work by Niall de Buitléar

August 21st – September 13th 2008

OPENING RECEPTION: 7pm Thursday August 21st

Accumulations is an exhibition of sculpture and drawing that have been produced through the labour intensive accumulation of simple elements. The sense of growth of the work over a period of time is essential

The sculptures use pre-processed materials; the artist is interested
in their transformative potential. Central to the sculpture are the
relationships that are formed between the found material, the
processes of construction, and the resulting forms. The sculptures are
essentially abstract but are intended to be suggestive of various
structures such as cells, fungi, landscapes or cityscapes, and
standing figures. Large drawings are composed of simple, geometric
elements; Freehand drawings lead to a distortion, away from the
geometric towards the organic.

Niall de Buitléar was born in Dublin in 1983 where he currently lives.
After graduating from D.I.T. with a BA in fine art in 2006 he was
awarded the year-long graduate residency at Flaxart Studios in
Belfast. His work has recently been shown at the Lewis Glucksman
Gallery, the Lab in Dublin, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Queen
Street Studios in Belfast, and at the Contemporary Art Centre in
Vilnius. This summer he undertook residencies at Ard Bia Berlin and
Limerick City Gallery of Art.
