Doswell Gallery, Rosscarbery will be showing ‘Patching the Void’, colour etchings and poems with related paintings and drawings by Tim Goulding from April 5 to May 11.

Tim Goulding was born in Dublin but has lived and worked near Allihies on the Beara peninsula since 1969. As well as being an accomplished visual artist, Tim is also a musician, composer and poet. He has exhibited extensively, including solo and group shows in Ireland, England, Portugal and the USA.

Tim’s visual artwork tends to be part of a series and he often spends three or four years on one subject. These collections can be radically different in both style and content but always stay true to a response to what appears in his life both visually and emotionally.

The images in this suite of six colour etchings, which were launched at the Taylor Galleries in February this year, are part of his most recent series, ‘Patching the Void’. This series is concerned with unravelling and patching and the inspiration comes from energetic particles, veins, threads and used textile surfaces; thereby making sparse poems with textural and calligraphic features, with a nod to the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic of Japan.

The poems, which accompany each image, are of investigation on the path of self-realisation. They speak to the part of us that loves truth. No wonder then that they are unflinching in their acceptance of whatever presents itself; celebrating the sacred in the commonplace.

The paintings and drawings are from the ‘Patching the Void’ series, which inspired the creation of the limited edition prints at the Graphic Studio, Dublin and which were launched at the Taylor Galleries in February 2015.

Classical guitarist Pat Coldrick will open the exhibition on Sunday, April 5 at 4pm and it continues until Monday May 11.  Further details are on www.doswellgallery.com and Facebook Doswell Gallery.
