Eilis O'Connell

Specific Gravity
17 October - 30 November 2013
Node, bronze, edit of 5, 20x14x9cm

The Irish Sculptor Eilis O’Connell is renowned for her large scale commissioned pieces.  Since 1979 she has created over 30 notable, permanent site-specific projects in the UK and mainland Europe, yet her small sculptures have rarely been seen.  This show focuses on the extraordinary cumulative strength of O’Connell’s small-scale works and examines how form is developed within her studio practice.  Mostly cast in bronze, a few in resin, the pieces are either maquettes, later to be enlarged, or stand-alone pieces, complete in their existing scale.  Yet across the range of this beautifully formed work a fascinating balance is to be found between different registers:  surface and shape; geometry and the organic; darkness and light.
