Abstract art at The Mac

Last Thursday night was the preview night of ‘The Air They Capture is Different’: an exciting joint exhibition at The Mac by Irish sculptors, Maud Cotter and Karl Burke.

The MAC’s Tall and Upper Galleries have once again been transformed and this time by works of abstract shapes and colour.

Maud Cotter is a contemporary Irish sculptor whose work has featured in group exhibitions and solo projects in Europe and the United States since the early 80s, while Karl Burke’s work involves built structures using professional fabricators in materials such as wood and stainless steel.

Downstairs in the Sunken Gallery for one month only is ‘Double Take’, showcasing the immersive mural work by German artist Lothar Götz.

The mural has been specifically created for the Sunken Gallery at the MAC, responding to the architecture and atmosphere of that particular gallery space. Götz has created a mural that uses the whole surface of three gallery walls, to draw the viewer in.

Both exhibitions are very much abstract art and definitely perfect for the superb gallery space in The Mac. Why not pop along for a look and let us know what you think!

Best of all, as always, it’s free and you can potter about at your leisure.
