Michael Gurhy : Gentle and Violent

8 Sep 2020–13 Sep 2020


The Nunnery Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work by London based artist Michael Gurhy. The exhibition, supported by Arts Council England, has been created over the past several months during lockdown and marks a shift in the artists practice towards the making of sculptural based objects while still incorporating more familiar mediums such as print, drawing, painting and a collaged photograph of the artist's parents. Francis Morris (Head of Collections International Art, Tate Modern) and Enrique Juncosa (Director, Irish Museum of Modern Art) both agreed that Michael Gurhy’s work “is small-scale work but potent in terms of emotion. His work addresses youth culture but evokes a knowledge of the unforeseen, of premonition”.
