The Darkened Room opens today at the Higher Bridges Gallery in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland. The show is comprised of a series of figurative monotype triptychs and a video piece that combines dozens of monotypes, drawings and paintings into thousands of shifting images in a looping meditation on the complexities of memory. Below are a few examples, plus some details.
