As You Are We
An exhibition of new work by Louise Rice
Exhibition opening Friday 16th November at 6pm
Leitrim Sculpture Centre, New Line, Manorhamilton
Existence as encounter – with the self, and with others: this is the theme of Louise Rice’s exhibition As You Are We. Developed over the course of her Leitrim County Council funded artist-residency at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, this new work extends Rice’s career-long exploration of the ‘human, all too human’ through the medium of glass. Whether in the mould-blown boxing gloves of Sparring Partners, the free-blown fantasia of Conversation Piece, or the pencil-like drawings of Peekaboo and Cupidity, Rice captures the delicate balance of forces at play in human connectedness.
The drawings, a major feature of the show, are the result of an intense period of experimentation with mark‑making on glass. Resisting the more decorative possibilities the material has to offer, Rice opts to create simple line drawings using black enamel on thin sheets of clear glass. Their figurative content represents a new departure.
This is a chance to see Rice’s largest solo exhibition to date, before it is shown in the Netherlands in summer 2013.
Exhibition runs until the 30th November 2012. Opening hours – Monday to Friday 10 – 4pm.
