Meet the Artist: Martina Galvin
The Butler Gallery is delighted to present Cubus, an exhibition of new sculpture by Martina Galvin.
Galvin presents evolutions of earlier sculptural works alongside a body of new work developed specifically for the Butler Gallery. This new work explores the use of industrial materials that includes painted steel, wood and acrylic. The installation titled Cubus is a series of repeated geometric forms painted in a range of dynamic colours. These immense squares stand directly on the floor and as a result force the viewer to confront them according to their own, material existence. They invite us to contemplate space. Through them we return to the purity of this simple revelation, that they, like us, inhabit space, disrupt space, contain space, define space, contextualize space and bring order to space. Despite their simplicity, they’re infinitely complex in their ability to challenge and engage us.
Join Martina for a lunchtime walk-through her exhibition and hear the artist speak about her practice and this series of work.
