‘The point just beyond my focus is often where the most interesting things are happening. I try to leave room for this space in the painting’. – Kurt Oppermann

‘Limits and Range’ is a new body of work by artist Kurt Oppermann. These abstract paintings at times allude to landscapes. The horizontal line is a reoccurring motif used to hold the composition together, a backdrop, a device that allows something else to happen, something not initially understood. Oppermann uses paint to explore methods of expression. Testing the limits of representation, line, form and colour play off each other in surprising ways. With a desire to combine contrasting elements, the paintings seek to find balance within the discordant. Process marks imbued with energy offer many points of departure suggesting that the limit and range are yet undecided.

This exhibition is kindly supported by Fingal County Council.

Ormond 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 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.
