The exhibition will open on March 3 and is taking place at Hang Tough Contemporary, Exchequer St. Dublin 2.

Paul Hallahan is an Irish artist whose work is primarily based in painting, but he also works in sculpture and video. Using various methods and techniques Paul’s paintings are built up of thin layers on mostly raw canvases which allow light to move through the works and allow the works change within the locations they are positioned.

Speaking about his new exhibition, he said: “The themes in my exhibition ‘Words as colour not language’, look at organic matter within our landscape, our relationship to the dense woodlands and crevices. Previous interests in my works have looked to ideas of the larger landscape such as horizons in urban settings and our relationship to the rising and setting sun within the built up environment.

The exhibition will present works that I have worked on throughout 2020 and 2021, most never seen before but all made during my transition from urban to country living. Since moving to south Donegal I have been able to explore the landscape like I never could while based in a city and this has allowed me to investigate ideas within the grime and ever changing undergrowth seen throughout the countryside and especially the coastal woods and valleys where I am currently based.”
