Jack & Jill wishes all the best to our friend Rasher for his latest exhibition called “Life’s a Glitch” – Subtle Imperfections From The Solar Plexus to be launched at Dean Hotel, Dublin. He was one of the Egg Hunt Campaign artists and always a true supporter of our Foundation!
Whether a collector or an appreciator, most will be familiar with the work of Rasher aka RM Kavanagh. The artist, who has had solo exhibitions in Dublin, Galway, London, Miami and LA and who’s work is represented in many collections both public and private, is back with his first collection in almost five years, “Life’s A Glitch – Subtle Imperfections From The Solar Plexus”.
Since Kavanagh’s last exhibition in 2010, the Dublin artist has been contemplating the grey areas of life while honing his craft under the technical guidance of Conor Walton, who himself studied in Florence with one of the art world’s contemporary masters, Charles H Cecil. The progression in the meticulous layering and finish of Kavanagh’s work is testament to the dedication and talent of this particular artist.
`Life’s a Glitch`, his most recent body of work explores the realms of the birth of an idea, its existence and then its demise….”Does it die or does it morph and evolve into something more manipulative, complex and beautiful to the viewer in order to deceive?”
“We all strive for harmony in the everyday routine but sometimes the mundane cycle of life drags us down into a subtle, dark emotional abyss”.
With this latest collection, we see the familiar and strange, the disturbing yet illuminating manifestations of an inquisitive and provocative mind.
Unusual for most artists, but true to form for this one, Rasher will be completing one of his biggest and most controversial paintings to date throughout the exhibition and will be onsite at weekends to interact with the public and to discuss his work in detail.
“As an Artist I delve into areas in life that are uncomfortable to ponder and project those ideas onto canvas leaving an everlasting stain on the viewers mind”.
The exhibition launches on March 11th at the Dean Hotel @ 6.30pm and will continue on the following dates: 14th 15th 22nd March & 5th April 11am – 7.30pm
