Clare Arts Office presents an exhibition by Michael McAloran. Michael was born in Belfast in 1976 but grew up in Co. Clare. He is the author of over 30 collections of poetry, experimental prose & aphorisms. Most recently published by Editions du Cygne (FR), VoidFront Press (U.S), Infinity Land Press (U.K), Oneiros Books (U.K) & also recently translated into Portuguese, (Barco Bebado).
Michael’s work, both in writing and visually, deals with the darker themes & elements of human existence. He is a member of Visual Artists Ireland (VAI) and recently began painting regularly, some of his previous work having been published in various online magazines. His recent paintings are forthcoming in a solo book of poetic text/ images this year.
In this exhibition the intention with this series of objects/ paintings is to convey a sensorial yet meaningless abstraction beyond the pictorial image, and to invite contemplation of that sensory awareness, through a chaotic process moving towards nothingness.
