A SPRING exhibition by the Malahide gallery featuring the work of up-and-coming artist Brian Halligan opens next week at Filmbase, Temple Bar.

Brian will be joined by three other artists, Elena Duff from Finglas, Cate Murphy from New Zealand and Patricio Cassinoni from South America, for the unveiling of this exciting new collection on Monday, April 16.

St-art is a new innovative online gallery whose primary aim is to represent Irish based emerging artists both nationally and internationally. It has a showroom in Malahide.

It established by Maria Colgan a few years ago after she helped Brian put together his first exhibition

During the process, she realised how difficult it was to put a showing together and now Maria represents a number of Irish-based artists on the online gallery.

St-art will represent these artists by arranging a number of exhibitions throughout the year, representing them at art fairs both in Ireland and abroad and by selling their work online.

Other services will also be provided to the artist to assist their career; these include research and guidance on submissions for art awards, grants and exposure through PR, advertising and the internet.

Brian held his first solo exhibition in October 2005 and since then his career has gone from strength to strength.

A follow up group show in New York and his inclusion in the Contemporary Art auction for James Adams and Son’s along with exhibitions along side Kevin Sharkey, Terry Bradley and Joby Hickey are testament to the strength of Brian’s work.

His art is reflective of his own character. The energy visible in the work evokes a sense of vibrancy and confidence.

His paintings are bold, subtle, poised, insightful, bright, dark, impatient, layered, difficult to categories but distinctively his own.

His last exhibition ‘Everything’ in October 2006, which featured a mix of photo-realistic, impressionistic, expressionistic, renaissance, urban and abstract paintings, all painted by a single artist.
