Anicca By Stephen Maybury opens at the Library Project tomorrow Night May 12th

Anicca; a Pali word meaning inconstant, is commonly used to describe the Buddhist doctrine of impermanence.

Using the term as a focal point, Maybury intertwines cultural interests, artistic concerns and leisurely rituals as a reflection on our physical relationships in this world.

Maybury’s obsessive and peculiar method of ruling faults and forms of found objects discovered in his everyday routines, showcase an unexpected beauty hidden in the mostly expired and unwanted debris. Drawing on these surfaces with long periods of exposure to light, the artist looks to defuse our obsession with archiving, security, permanency and preservation.

This beauty and energy rooted in such rhythms and cycles of our surroundings can also be seen in our relationship with personal rituals. Maybury uses the inevitable destruction of a skateboard as a sign of progression through a series of documented drawings comprised through choreographed routines.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
