ME TWO TRAMPOLINE

17th - 27th August 2015

Our next exhibition is called "Me Two Trampoline" by Cassandra Mahoney. The exhibition runs from the 17th to the 27th of August 2015.

 

Cassandra Mahoney’s paintings are characterised by a unique combination of realism and abstraction. In many of her compositions figures actively engage with the viewer, whilst in others, one is led into the paintings almost as a voyeur, being offered a glimpse of emotions conveyed.  Colour, repetition and patterning are key elements in her work and producing an intensity that vibrates from the paintings.
