Kaye Maahs

 

Claremorris Gallery is delighted to debut recent fine art graduate of the GMIT, Kaye Maahs.  The exhibition, Here, there and somewhere in between | land, sea and bog, will open in Claremorris Gallery on July 22nd at 7.30 and will run until August 4th.  The artist is a native of Kerry and has been living and working in the Burren, County Clare since 2003.  . 

 

 


Though the artist has only recently turned to painting full time she immediately attracted critical recognition, having been selected for several exhibitions including the 186th Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition in 2016 that earned her a special mention by the Irish Times art critic Aidan Dunne in his review of the academy’s annual exhibition.  In May of this year Kaye was the recipient of Clare County Council Bursary Tyrone Guthrie Award 2017 and is one of eight artists selected for the Kerry Visual Artists Showcase that will take place at the Department of Regional Development, Rural Affairs, Arts and the Gaeltacht in Killarney on Culture Night 2017, supported by Kerry County Council and the Arts Council. Maahs' work is rooted in both the local and the personal.  Her painting practice is defined by daily observations and musings. The Clare coastline, vast sheets of Burren rock, telegraph poles book-ending flat fields or a patch in the grey landscape of blazing red earth. It is the residue of these moments that informs her work. Maahs draws from the lexicon of Irish painting reminiscent of painters such as Sean McSweeney, or Donald Teskey.  But Maahs' visual language is confident and does not mimic. Unlike a lot of recent graduates whose work can be overburdened by prevailing notions of "Irish painting" the artist's voice is authentic and her technique masterful.  Her subject matter is ordinary; the landscape which surrounds her, but her engagement with it is fresh, true and beautiful.
