After Nyne Gallery invites you to a solo show of work by Gillian Hyland, running until the end of March.
The exhibition will showcase a selection of Hyland’s narrative photographs that are psychologically evocative, at once sublimely theatrical yet poignant. Her dramatic photographs are often based on her own poems and other people’s memories and feelings, they depict characters in human dramas and isolated emotional situations. Frozen in time, vulnerable moments are presented in glorious technicolour and timeless sets. The composition of each image suggested a larger narrative set within a single moment.
“For me, it’s not about creating a pretty picture, it’s the intention that lies beneath it that is truly worthwhile. I’m drawn to the thinking mind behind the face, the subjects’s eyes holding a story in their gaze.”
‘Artist of the moment’ Peter Doyle recently presented his work in Dublin, at the newly opened Maser Atelier on 7 December 2018. Doyle will now take up residency at The Exhibitionist Hotel in London with his show In Plain Sight, to celebrate with us everything that is great and wonderful about Ireland.
Self-taught and trained, the young Donaghmede-born painter now lives and works in Hackney. Painting mostly with acrylic on canvas, Doyle’s work possesses a naive bravery. Pastel tones and patterns set the backdrop for the majority of Doyle’s compositions. Overset with recurring motifs of women, horses and flowers, Doyle reinvents the still life with a charming intimacy. Having described his approach as ‘casual’, Doyle’s work can be recognised by his immediate, definitive way of mark-making.
Curator Vestalia Chilton commented:
“This solo exhibition will continue to explore the characters surrounding Peter. Some from abroad, some are of friends set upon a distorted set of Dublin motifs, and others reflect stories and characters of intrigue to the artist. Prolifically producing intoxicating and dramatic paintings, we know that Peter has an auspicious career ahead.”
On the evening of Monday 16th July, Londnr Magazine was invited to attend the Young Stationers’ annual dinner. The night was one of lively conversation and camaraderie between professionals from all trades within the publishing industry, from traditional print media to archivism to eco-friendly paper-making. Surrounded by the opulent stained glass of Stationers’ Hall, the attendees celebrated the accomplishments of all shortlisted for the Young Stationers’ Prize, which is annually awarded to a professional under the age of 40 who has demonstrated marked success in their career.
Many congratulations to Dr. Shane Tilton, the 2018 winner of the Young Stationers’ Prize, for his contributions to the study and practice of multimedia journalism across the pond in Ohio. We would also like to congratulate the recipients of the Young Stationers’ Awards: freelance journalist Salma Haidrini, Callum Edwards of Prima Software, Marie Cannon of Clifford Chance, Julie Chen of The Cheeky Panda, and Londnr’s very own managing editor, Nina-Sophia Miralles.
We are very honoured to have had the opportunity to participate in the grandeur and conviviality of the Young Stationers’ annual dinner. Many thanks to Dominic Graham for hosting the night and for his work chairing the Young Stationers’ Committee, and we wish all the best to Ella Kahn, the new chairman of the Young Stationers.
