Magical transformations in new art exhibition at Droichead Arts Centre

"Like alchemists of old, transmuting base metals like lead into precious gold and silver. That's how I see these artists,” said David Newton as he opened the Assemble, Transform, Transmute exhibition at Droichead Art Centre.

"They assemble the dross of everyday life, images from the popular media, transform by selecting and juxtaposing, and transmute into stunning new artworks that use colour and poetic techniques like repetition and metaphor to interpret and comment on society.

Laura Gramzow overwhelms with her giant painted collages of familiar images from past and present, Emma Ray embroiders images from recent events onto items of clothing uses other clothing to comment on aspects like health.

Meanwhile Roger Hudson's photomontages in simple and complex patterns comment on many aspects of our society - a wide variety in many different styles and materials available at a range of prices in an exciting display curated by Dorothy Smith. The artists will talk about their work at 6.30pm on Wednesday June 12th in the gallery in an event called “In Discussion”. All are welcome.

Roger's book “Taking the Scissors to Society” containing more of his photomontages and how they came about is also on sale at a special price for those who want to know more about the technique.

The exhibition runs till June 22nd and the gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-4pm. Admission free.
