- a painting exhibition by Joseph O'Rourke
Opening Night: Friday 10th November, with live music from Forrest Lloyd.
6.30-9pm (a bar will be running from 7pm)
Exhibition continues on Saturday 11th and 18th November 12 - 4pm
'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 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.
