Julia Dubsky | Salon of Good Time, TBG+S Opening

May 16, 2018 – 3:09 pm |

Studio 16 | Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

Opening on Wednesday 23 May, 6-8pm
Continuing to Wednesday 30 May

Opening hours:
11 – 6pm | Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Sunday and Monday by arrangement

Salon Of Good Time is an upcoming show which concludes friend of ACW Julia Dubsky’s year-long Graduate Residency at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, which has taken place in studio 16.

Over the course of the residency, her work has become bolder in scale and colour, while continuing to question nuances of painting. A personal desire for possibilities beyond impasses has spawned inversions throughout the work – light layers cover dark grounds; dabs are drawn from negative space; receding colours are foregrounded; hot colours cooled and vice versa. Poppyseed oil (which is clear in colour) was used in place of linseed oil for mixing paints, to grant more agency in temperature and tone.

On this occasion, there is an abundance of paintings filling the room. Some lean against the wall, perched on bubblewrap in anticipation of being moved, packed up or turned around. This mode of display consciously suggests a kind of engagement: that of a studio visit. Titles and figurative marks feature more prominently now in narrating the visual language; while varieties of time continue to be recorded in the paintings among layers and marks.

An accompanying text will be written by the TBG+S curator, Rayne Booth.

Julia will give an artist talk as part of the Basic Space talks in Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Friday, 18 May, 1pm. The talk will touch on: departing from pathos, jealousy and scarcity, preparations/rehearsals, the grid, narrative through style and titles, paint applications signifying readymades, graffiti, spokes, double negative (representation), smuggling, intrinsic value?, hard edge, Persian calligraphy paintings, penumbra, viridian, red and blue, perception studies … with possible reference to Donna Haraway, Isabelle Graw, Bini Adamczak, Marge Piercy, Djuna Barnes and Clarice Lispector.

Julia Dubsky (b. 1990, Dublin),was awarded the Recent Graduate Residency in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios for one year, beginning in May 2017, after graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 2016, from Fine Art and Visual Culture. Since then, Dubsky has been based in Dublin, London and Berlin. In October 2018, she will join the class of Jutta Koether in Hamburg University of Art.
