Ashley B. Holmes’ paintings explore states of mind and psychological landscapes using the iconography of houses. By layering acrylic transfers, skins, glazes and Perspex she creates a theatrical illusion of space through which Colonial, Federal and Victorian style houses float, drift, fly and drown in a vast expanse of pattern.
Holmes has recently exhibited internationally from USA to China. Her many past exhibitions in Ireland/UK include EV+A, ‘A Sense of Place’, and selected Royal Ulster Academy Annual Exhibitions. She has a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, USA and an MA from Chelsea College of Art, London. Her artworks are in both private and public collections including The Bank of Ireland and The Royal Victoria Hospitals.
Exhibition is curated by Francesca Biondi.
(Closed 19 & 30 March, 2 & 3 April)
