What's on at the Hyde Bridge Gallery

Current Exhibition:

" 'New-December' exhibition " by Fergus Lyons


Opening Wednesday 7th December from 5.30pm w/ Brian Leydon

An exhibition by Fergus Lyons of recent Sligo-landscapes and other oil-paintings and also pencil, ink and watercolour drawings.With the new work, the exhibition includes a re-hang from the previous Hyde Bridge Gallery show " To Sligo - and Beyond " by Fergus Lyons. This show continues until Saturday, December 17th. Artist's Statement:A sentient being, embodied and living on a lump of matter, lost in infinite space, at some stage my eyes opened and I was forced to considered this, unsettling, human predicament. I tried to arrive at some plan as how best to respond. I could, of course, refuse to cooperate and stay on in the bed, but maybe I could get a job, with a shovel, in philosophical construction ? My decision, finally, was to take up the paint brush and start painting. This is the road I'm on now. In relation to drawing and how it underlies a finished painting, these thoughts, I imagine, have something to do with the process of construction. Drawing being one route to consider.

Wider than the Wild
Borne on the Wind
Singing in my Blood Stream
Drumming on my Skin
Closer than the Air that I Cleave
Than the Marrow in my Bones
Rising in all that Falls
I see a Road
