Leslie Nicholl: All the Monsters are Frightened of the Dark
The Engine Room Gallery, Newtownards Road, Belfast
Until March 27, Tues-Sat 10am–4pm
This artist lives and works in Bangor for part of the year and spends the rest working in Berlin. Widely exhibited, particularly in Europe, this particular show will travel from here to Hanover.
Her style is boldly expressionistic, full of splashes, runs and handprints all controlled to create the central image, whether man or monster. In fact she seems to use all sorts of things to overprint her fairly vivid background colours.
If you are planning to make a visit to the gallery, make sure you also check out the exhibition of work by Colin Corkey which is now on display. The Gallery can be contacted on: 028 9045 5184.
