Coinciding with the release of his book of the same name, Noel McKenna’s latest exhibition End Street features paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and wooden tables inset with painted and glazed ceramic tiles. The works in this exhibition explore the domestic space we all inhabit. The dog and cat are poignant symbols of the souls of the animal and the role they play in people’s lives.

“Our rooms are our shelter where we can feel safe, and the things we put in our rooms are a portrait of us. A lonely child, quiet and introverted, I learned how to cope on my own with the help of pets, birds, stray cats and dogs,” McKenna said. “A lot of my sources for paintings are autobiographical and many of these rooms are my ‘childhood’ rooms that I share with my pets as companions.”

 

Exhibition opens 6—8pm Tuesday 22 October 2019
