Solo Exhibition


Denis O'Connor premieres a series of dynamic vertical sculptures that metaphorically narrate notions of belonging and identity. O'Connor's vocabulary includes ladders, dwellings and landscape motifs all constructed in mild and stainless steel. The highly reflective surfaces of the stainless steel elements heighten their soaring vertiginous qualities. The sculptor is concerned with the elevation of mass and visual weight upwards to the sky to create the perception of weightlessness and the illusion of gravity being denied. The show also includes O'Connor's permanent installation Tower 4, a dry stone conical tower that soars upwards towards several ancient oak trees.
