OUT OF THE BLUE
Exhibition Blues! Please accept my apologies.
On Saturday morning, out of the blue, I received, via email, the unexpected cancelation of my part in the shared exhibition with Diarmuid Breen from Blue House Gallery curator Brian Lalor.
Brian’s reasoning remains a mystery.
I accept his decision and move on.
For me this is disappointing news to pass on to you at such short notice.
It has been two and a bit intense months solely focused on creating new paintings from scratch. Something from nothing as the saying goes.
I will reschedule and relocate.
For now, those of you who have made travel arrangements to include a visit to Schull on Friday evening for the exhibition, again please accept my apology for this unforeseen change and thank you.
If, however, you are going to be in Schull on Friday 17th of April I’d like to invite you to visit and preview a selection of my new paintings in the informal setting of my front room.
A humble fireside occasion with artists, musicians and friends.
Please feel free to call by:
Pier Road, Schull Friday 17th April 18:00-21:00.
A massive thank to all who have generously given wishes, ideas and encouragement over the past few days, months and continue to do so!
I’ve since heard a few bullshit versions of what happened, Brian’s story. Well there’s a recording of our meeting. The one where we set up how things would go.
When I approached Keith and asked ‘what happened, any explanation’ the response I got was his finger repeatedly jabbed in my face.
We can all fuck up, for sure, but lies to cover it up and abuse / bullying on top. Fuck that!
