3rd May – 2nd June
The Hamilton Gallery are delighted to extend an open invitation to the opening of ‘Fovea’, an exhibition of work by Vivienne Roche, on Thursday 3rd May at 6pm. Patrick Murphy, RHA Director, will open the exhibition.
Over the last 30 years Vivienne Roche has worked in large-scale bronze, glass, steel, sailcloth, stuccodore plaster, and reconfigured landscape. Drawing, watercolour and photography have also been central to her work. Her artistic themes derive from site-specific dialogues between architecture and sculpture, the emotional resonances of the coastal landscape in which she lives, relationships between male and female, archaeology sites and their artefacts, and between music and the visual. Light has been a central focus as is evidenced in recent work.
She is a member of Aosdána and the Royal Hibernian Academy, a former member of the Arts Council (1993-1998), a founder member and first chairperson of the National Sculpture Factory in Cork, and the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from University College Cork (2006).
