Joby Hickey‘s photographic work, at the Sebastian Guinness Gallery, sets us adrift in an unresolvable timeframe: the striking pinhole-camera images collapse past and present in an arresting manner. The show is part of the PhotoIreland Festival, and runs until Tuesday 31 July.
Boasting artists Phil Collins, Mark Francis, Liam Gillick, David Godbold, Merlin James and Isabel Nolan, the group show at the Kerlin Gallery features contemporary, top-rung artists. The show continues until Friday 31 August.
An equally illustrous group of artists features in the Rubicon Gallery’s summer show, Undertones. They are Stephen Brandes, Rowena Dring, Blaise Drummond, Gabhann Dunne, Patrick Michael Fitzgerald, Anita Groener, Marie Hanlon, Martin Healy, Ronnie Hughes, Andrzej Jackowski, Eithne Jordan, Michael Kane, Nick Miller, Tom Molloy and Nathalie du Pasquier. This show runs until Saturday 25 August.
Gavin O’Curry continues at the Peppercanister Gallery. His work captures moments of laden stillness, sometimes using quick brushwork to work the dynamic against the unmoving. The show runs until Saturday 28 July.
Gemma Browne, at Kevin Kavanagh, produces works that hint at a troubled ideal – in this case the transitional world of the growing child. The approach is light, but that is the trick. The show runs until Saturday 28 July.
