Common Land by Paul Crook

Custom House Studios at Westport Quay are pleased to present an exhibition of paintings Common Land by Paul Crook on Thursday October 29 at 7.30 pm. Exhibition runs every day until 22nd November 2015 at the Custom House Studios Gallery, The Quay, Westport. Co Mayo. Ireland

The recent paintings address a series of important issues about the relationship we all have with our surroundings, looking more specifically at our experience of living within a more urban context. Paul Crook’s interest in this subject areas goes hand in hand with his involvement with the painting process itself. His work essentially investigates the exciting relationship that exists between the painting medium and the subject content.

His work has always drawn heavily from what he has experienced. It is essentially the product of what he sees and does every day. He finds the bland, mundane, functional and familiar places we inhabit exciting on many levels. Firstly, the places he references have become a part of his personal geography and history; this is his landscape, an environment that has evolved to serve the demands of the society that he grew up in. He is intrigued by the way these spaces represent many aspects of our human condition and behaviour. In a strangely uncomfortable manner, these places somehow mirror who we are and what we want from our lives. The work explores some of the more unsettling aspects of the urban landscape space where there may be a sense of uncertainty and unpredictability and attempts to identify and reveal something essentially dynamic about these places.
