Adam Pomeroy: Nocturne

presented by glór

glór presents an exhibition of new work by Adam Pomeroy.

Adam is a one of Ireland’s leading contemporary figurative artists and his work has been shown widely in Ireland and the UK. Paintings from his biblical series can be seen in Galway and Ennis cathedrals, and have also been shown in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. The work in Nocturne is concerned with minimalist realism, paring down representation to the essential without sacrificing the integrity of the subject. Nocturne is as much about what is not painted as what is.

A stillness pervades his work…He casts a melancholy spell, but the work is far from gloomy. In his concentrated attentiveness there is also a delight in sheer vitality.’ Aidan Dunne, Irish Times
