COMPRESSION is an exhibition bringing together contemporary artworks that achieve density and compactness of meaning through the use of spare and concentrated means. While much recent art has depended upon high production values and spectacular effects, this exhibition explores strategies for the generation of aesthetic and conceptual power via the articulation of more modest artistic materials.

COMPRESSION will feature recent work by nine artists from the UK and Ireland: Stephen Brandes, Maud Cotter, Angela Fulcher, Tom Hackney, Catherine Harty, Caoimhe Kilfeather, Susan Morris, Trevor Shearer, and Alison Turnbull. It will open on 9th July at Ormston House and will run until 7th August.

The catalogue will present colour images of a selection of the artworks on view, together with an essay by the curator and a series of ‘Notes on Making’ that offer specific insights into the materials and processes employed in the creation of each work. Without your support we cannot produce this publication!

In order to help meet the design and printing costs for the catalogue, the artists have each generously donated drawings and editioned prints, many of which are specifically related to the works being shown in the exhibition. These are being offered as individual rewards for donations of 250 euro. For a slideshow of the images with full captions, see the video to the left, and for higher resolution images visit our flickr page
