Fergus Martin’s exhibition at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane is drawn from his recent experiences of sight and seeing. A new body of work in painting and sculpture that is united by a sense of drama and raucous reflection. Yet their placement leaves the viewer in an unsettled state of calm.

Martin has called his paintings ‘the carriers’ of colour, but the colour is not restricted only to its structured composition. Mediated by the viewers gaze, it belongs to the entirety of the world as the eye sees it, and renders it accessible.

Born in Dublin in 1955, Fergus Martin works in a variety of media from two-dimensional work such as painting and photography to sculptural works, defining and questioning the relationship between central and peripheral, form and energy. He has exhibited widely with recent exhibitions at Internationale Kunst in der Südwestkurve, in Karlsruhe, Germany, and in C2, Crawford Municipal Gallery of Art, Cork.
