a consequence of – a dappled world is a solo exhibition by Maud Cotter and the third iteration of a body of work developed since 2015 through exhibitions in Limerick City Gallery of Art, 2018 and The Dock, Carrick on Shannon, 2019 and now the Hugh Lane Gallery. Her work responds to the gallery spaces and combine an apparent simplicity with a powerful sense of joy in the materials of the everyday. Working in plastics and metals, Cotter contemplates the tension between light and space.
"Maud Cotter’s work sets up an exchange between the most humble and rudimentary of everyday objects and far-reaching abstract and conceptual models." (Ed Krčma from his essay 'To Diagram without Stilling: On Maud Cotter's Sculpture' 2016)
The exhibition will be accompanied with a fully illustrated publication, with a new text by Jonathan Griffin, alongside texts by Michael Lightborne (2019) and Sarah Kelleher (2018).
