Gormleys Fine Art is excited to present a solo exhibition by renowned Irish contemporary artist Maser. The highly anticipated ‘Bookmarks In Time’ will run from 9th – 30th September in our Dublin gallery.
Maser has generated a significant international following for his unique graphic style, and now hopes to forge a path for other street artists by making the jump to a leading contemporary gallery.
Over the past 20 years he has collaborated with President Michael D Higgins, U2, Brown Thomas, The National Library and created large murals & installations in New York, London, Sydney, Detroit, Milan, Copenhagen and Hawaii.
Maser’s art is influenced by optical and mid-century art, and is regularly complemented with bold colours, pattern overlays and gestural forms. Initially evolved through street art, his style conveys an uplifting and socially conscious message to the viewer, and he is unafraid to experiment with any artistic format.
“The move to Gormleys will allow me to exhibit at a much larger scale, while reaching a wider audience. The inspiration for the collection came from me resorting to nature as a saviour, hiking and travelling around Ireland. Elements within the paintings are visual tokens I collected while outdoors either through memory or visual record.”
“The exhibition paintings will be around five-foot square – with a big canvas I can have a loose arm and you can see my gestural movement. I see this as an example of adapting my traits from street art and staying true to my heritage.”
The exhibition will consist of ten large-scale and five smaller paintings which he terms as his most considered collection.
Bookmarks In Time, runs in our Dublin gallery on South Frederick Street, Dublin 2, from from 6th – 30th September.
