Artworks: Tom Weld Exhibition Sept/Oct 2020
Exhibition: A Retrospective of the works of Tom Weld will be running from mid-September – 23rd October 2020.
Featuring paintings and drawings from over fifty years, including his marvellous Aran Island drawings, his powerful, politically-inspired Maps series of paintings and works made alongside his students, this is an important, “must-see” exhibition. Inspired by land, seen mostly from above, by history, archaeology, politics and language, among other influences, Tom mainly uses oils – on a variety of surfaces: canvas; paper; found wood; and to various scale.
“I started painting, untrained, while reading English Literature at University, I was as interested in words as in paint. Some of this work dates back to the ’70s. Most was done since moving to Ireland in 2012.”
