A collection of bits with nowhere else to go - drawings, ramblings, photographs from the studio and beyond - the process behind the painting - the method behind the madness or sometimes just the madness
Solo Exhibition of new works by Natasha Pike at Origin Gallery, 37 Fitzwilliam Street Upper, D2. To be opened by Peter Murray, director of Cork's Crawford Art Gallery, 20th of October from 6-8pm. Show runs until the 14th of November.
This collection of drawings and paintings are a culmination of Pike's work and time spent in Berlin. An emigrant returning home after three years, this show explores the dynamics of identity.
Moving from rural Ireland to inner city Berlin and back, these works contain a new boldness of power and freedom fed by a fierce need to understand the city, the history and the identity of it, to gauge the individuals in it as if in self reflection and questioning. While the work is executed with restraint and discipline, the show remains hopefully vibrant.
