Hang Tough Gallery, Thursday 3rd October - Thursday 17th October

Threesome – Vanessa Power, Signs of Power: Solo Exhibition.

Using traditional woodblock typefaces from the National Print Museum as inspiration, and even recreating three-dimensional versions to be used as precise references, each design in Threesome‘s large-scale pieces is beautifully crafted directly onto glass using traditional sign-writing gilding techniques. Experimentation is at the heart of Power's work and this is again evident in her application of materials including Italian 23ct gold leaf, mother of pearl shell and iridescent glitter to create her art before each piece is set against a coloured backdrop.

Each is as simple as it is strikingly graphic, and this is an exhibition not to be missed, from an artist who continues to experiment in her search for new forms grounded in traditional skills that were once thought lost. Pricing for original artworks starts at €300. A limited number of prints will also be available for purchase.

Launch: Thursday, October 3rd, 6.30pm-9.30pm.
