Recognized | Brian Flynn

Calgary artist, Brian Flynn’s latest body of work "Recognized" continues his interest in social constructions and his family’s ties to politics in Ireland. Using oil paint and photo-transfers as mediums, Brian recreates figures from both his family’s history as well as Ireland’s turbulent politicized past.

When: On now until January 18, 2020

Where: Paul Kuhn Gallery, Calgary

Building upon his exhibition currently on display at the Nickle Galleries, Mullin continues to explore the capacity of painting as an essential means of communication.  Just as there is a distinction between truly non representational painting and abstraction, Mullin draws a line between what can be understood through spoken or written language, and what can only be comprehended in visual terms.

Mark Mullin | I'll climb in your eyes

WHEN: On now until December 14, 2019

WHERE: Nickle Galleries, University of Calgary

With the work of Mark Mullin, there is always more than meets the eye. This exhibition, by focussing on his recent non-representational paintings on paper and on canvas, engages not as much with an aesthetic assessment or appreciation of Mullin’s work as with how it functions. Over the past 15 years or more, Mullin’s painting has steadily developed both aesthetically and intellectually.
