By Anthony Lyttle
09 Jun – 16 Sept 2012
Anthony Lyttle is Éigse’s 2012 selected ‘059’ artist and he creates an immersive space within the gallery by making a series of large-scale drawings and inter-related smaller works on paper.
Central to these drawings is the physical process of making, which involves the endless repetition of the same mark and the ensuing rhythmic energy of repetitive action.
As the drawings evolve, a shadow image forms and assumes a visual influence of the picture plane, resulting in a play of balance between the dominant and the recessive. Obscuring and camouflaging becomes the preoccupation in building a density of marks on the surface of the delicate paper.
