The Doorway Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition space on 25 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2.
This new gallery space will feature, a new artist each week, and this week we are featuring
Leonard Sexton, painting now for 30 years, studied painting under Patrick Graham, one of Ireland’s most renowned contemporary artists. He taught for some years after graduation, before embarking on a career which saw him rapidly develop his own individual style, as well as creating a following which has resulted in several sell-out exhibitions.
“Beyond the dimensions of style and technique, the image takes over. Thereafter the works enter an unspoken world where they comfortably or uncomfortably exist. In my work images of reality are in a state of constant flux, scarred by the marks of change and movement. The images I create make reference to what is gone and what is to come. Everything in existence fights for survival and ultimately loses; time moves on. Where there are no figures, I believe there is an overwhelming sense of a space one has just occupied, while waiting for a reappearance. My paintings exist in a dimension where sensory perception tries to take over from visual awareness. In the search for the unattainable, one hopes to stumble upon something of relevance.” Leonard Sexton
Venue: The Doorway Gallery, 25 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2.
The Exhibition will be on show from August 28th - September 2nd
