Visible Visions

CALLAN -- The experience of the Kilkenny Collective of Art Talent¹ offers important lessons for everyone involved in fostering creativity. The work in the KCAT studio involves mentors observing the creative process in real time. From their professional experience and consultation,² the staff knows the kinds of supports required to support this creativity, how to nurture it and confront it. During the past five years, KCAT has provided the context needed to bring art to a high level of fulfilment. Some of the best examples of this process appear in Visible Visions, a handsome 143-page glossy book.

Sci-fi-Fact or Fiction

Does Sci-fi really hold any particular meaning or value. What I mean to say is whether or not the genre is referring to a vision of the future or is it just conjured up from imaginative minds. I myself believe that it is a representation of what human society can achieve through progression of scientific and technologial endeavour. It is entirely possible theoretically to achieve feats of mass speed but all that is required is for innovation to be matched by a physical representation of the theories that scientists fire around every day. Our society has the knowledge to do what the movies do but stall at doing so because of other matters such as economic related aspects. It is a costly business but if we want to expand beyond our planet, we as a society must strive to do so and break the deadlock that is being repressed to one planet. Sci-fi gives us the ideas but these ideas are based on what knowledge we have of science although most people will struggle to believe this. Are you a believer sci-fi being based on possible achievements of the future? Feel free to post a reply on this site.

Maureen Gallace in the Hyde

Icy Barns by Maureen GallaceDUBLIN -- I shared a Gallace moment in the Douglas Hyde Gallery today. It happened through layers of white oil on canvas that evoked a shared memory, captured by the artist in her quiet, fastidious way. The cavernous void of the Douglas Hyde Gallery swallows Maureen Gallace's paintings but not to the detriment of the artwork. For Gallace understates her craft as a matter of course and those who know her art understand the need to see it up close.

Aidan Dunne on Graduate Shows

IRISH TIMES -- Art critic Aidan Dunne has traveled around to most third level graduate shows. He thinks "there is a tendency to take the old manual processes for granted. This may relate to the prevalent assumption that ideas matter more than their material expression, that content outweighs form, but it is a reckless assumption."

Crits on Movie Posters

GOTHAMIST -- Village Voice writer Justine Elias thinks that "NYC subway grafitti on movie posters is always good for gauging public reaction. Along with some added moustaches, beards, eyeglasses, and blackened teeth (every movie poster gets some of that), I've seen one that now reads, 'RAISING HELEN'S BUTT.'"
