If It Doesn't Make Sense, That's Fine by Jim McElvaney
âIf It Doesn't Make Sense, That's Fine' is Jim McElvaney's third solo show.
Jim creates expressive often unplanned, spontaneous work, suggesting influences of expressionism, illustration and abstraction.
Capturing intimate, candid and raw expressions, the subjects in Jim McElvaney's work range from the surreal and haunting to the witty and charismatic. These are chosen not on a basis of recognition but on personal visual appeal with a strong focus on human emotion.
Combining a number of methods and materials to produce engaging and provocative depictions of human expression, for jim, the emotion depicted in each work is represented as much by the image itself as it is the process of achieving it. The expressive gestures in his painting and constructive lines in his drawing often present more emotional insight than the subject itself.
'If It Doesn't Make Sense, That's Fine' is Jim's third solo show, following âPlans Create Problems', his 2011 debut show at Outsiders and âStop Looking at the Walls, Look out the Window', his first show with No Walls. This is Jim's first show back in the UK after exhibiting extensively in South Korea throughout 2012.
The opening night is Friday the 1st of February from 6pm, with the show running until Sunday 3rd March.
