‘The Hole’ will present work by painter, recent graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, and artist in residence at Bankley Studios, Joseph O’Rourke.


The exhibition brings together paintings by Joseph O'Rourke all made in 2017. Some have already been exhibited this year at ‘Giants’ in March (Tent Gallery, Edinburgh), and in June at E.C.A. degree show. Some work is being exhibited for the first time. Recent work has increasingly been made with ideas based around personal values in relation to global events. The title of this exhibition ‘The Hole’ refers to the seemingly un-fillable holes that governments, politicians, financiers, corporations are leaving in the human race, both as individuals and communities. The title also draws reference from the song ‘Way down in the Hole’ by Tom Waits.

The opening night on 10th November 6.30-9pm will see the exhibition be accompanied with live music by Forrest Lloyd. Forrest is a multidisciplinary artist working left of field in RnB, noise, and grime.
