The Tipperary Excel Art Gallery will host an art exhibition by Blawnin Clancy entitled Susurrus from Saturday, January 25 to Saturday, March 8.

Speaking of the exhibition Blawnin said: “I am on a journey of discovery. I am seeking answers and information. I need to travel, to see, to look, to draw, to capture and to paint. My current body of work called Susurrus - a whispering or murmuring sound - has developed from visits I have made to small inlets, beaches and bays along the South coast of Ireland.

“Drawn to these locations again and again I am familiar with the rock formations, little coves and channels eroded through the stone outcrops that

are filled and emptied by the tide. I am interested in the changes that happen in these locales: the changing light throughout the day and the

effects it has on these areas.

“These paintings are also concerned with the dichotomy of time: the swift daily ebb and flow of the tide and the slower geological changes that occur to the silent and seemingly unmoving stone. I am evoking the memory of the colour and movement of the sea water and the boundaries it meets in this collection of artworks by using the techniques of glazing, splattering and pouring techniques in oil paints and mixed media, giving the surface of the image energy, activity and a sense of movement.”
