Fine Art Master of Philosophy Candidates Exhibit at University Gallery
Kiera O'Toole and Cate McCarthy are two Master of Philosophy (Fine Art) candidates with exhibitions running in the University Gallery during December.
Kiera O'Toole examines the emotional and political landscape of Irish national identity politics from an engendered migrant perspective. Her exhibition Beyond the Pale: Australia presents a trilogy of sculptural and drawing installations, embedded with signs and symbols which reflect mother Ireland's cultural history and identity.
Cate McCarthy considers the process of becoming. Dig a bit deeper: connection and contemporary landscape art explores how memory, knowledge and connection are imbued in place, and how to personally relate paintings and drawings to a sense of place and country by the use of materials such as ochres, and the use of strong simple abstract forms.
The exhibitions are open to the public. Entry is free.
WHEN: 5-16 December 2012
Opening is Saturday, 8 December at 3pm
