    Butler Gallery was proud to host STATIC TV by Kilkenny native Nevan Lahart.

    Nevan Lahart is an artist comfortable working in a variety of mediums – painting, sculpture, installation, video animations and performance. This exhibition included over ninety-five of the TV paintings – cutout TV shapes that create a framework for containment. These ‘static’ TV images while undeniably still, have a narrative life to them that fuels our imagination. The paintings have a raw, roughly hewn quality to them and often include distinctive cartoon-like typography. The exhibition also featured newly painted video projections, which have allowed Lahart to realize large-scale versions of the TV’s. Lahart stumbled across the motif of the television and found it perfectly suited his needs.
