Mark Joyce – Countermovement

18 Nov, 2022 - 29 Jan, 2023

Countermovement explores ideas of visual rhythm drawn from the didactic manifesto ‘La Peinture et ses Lois” by Albert Gleizes, one of the original influences on the development of abstract art in Ireland

Combining colour and line in an alternating curving composition, this large scale piece reflects the artist’s research into early modernist models of colour, and the dual aspect of colour as both a physical material and a function of light.
