Margaret Corcoran with a selection of graduates.
"Dark Aspasia" - is a work following a theme from Margaret Corcoran's most recent solo show: Aspasia - An Influential Immigrant, Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin. It was reviewed favourably by Frieze Art Magazine, London and The Irish Times.
The Three Graces are part of an ongoing series of watercolours and canvases based on images of the sculptor Canova's Neo- Classical marble masterpiece. The three goddesses are shown nude, huddled together. Their heads almost touching. Corcoran liked the delicate beauty and peaceful balance that seems to exist between the three heads.
Also on show will be installations by a selection of students; Dominika Glowinkowska, graduate from NCAD and from the Crawford College of Art, Cork; etchings by undergraduate Aaron Philips, textile installation by Carly Gadbury and metal work by Cian Carroll.
