Responding Today: Contemporary Interpretations of the West

Responding Image

Kathy Herbert
Shadows, 1996 (detail)
16 10 1/2", McMullen Museum

The concluding section explores how contemporary artists register both change and continuity in their visual responses to the Irish landscape. This section presents works by both Irish and American artists, including a group of artists associated with the Ballinglen Artists Fellowship in county Mayo. Realist depictions by Eric Aho, Peter Brooke, Jane Goldman, and Susan Shatter are juxtaposed with expressionist images by Gwen O'Dowd, Anne Neely, Donald Teskey, and David Brewster and abstract images by Jane Proctor, and Deirdre O'Mahony. Paintings focused on the formalist language are compared to works employing postmodern content, including Dorothy Cross's video "Endarken" and Kathy Herbert's installation pieces.
