April Gertler presents: Prisoner of Damp Patches

Opening on 27th Jan 2011 at 6pm

Exhibition continues until Thursday 10th Feb. Opening times: 12:00 – 17:00

American Artist, April Gertler utilizes a variety of variety of media in her work including collage, drawing and photography. Though her works tend to be small in scale they pack a powerful punch in addressing aspects of everyday life – inner dialogues, moments and details the artist sees, hears or considers as she moves though her day. Her works are a mirror of the quotidian, but taken …together, they also point to larger themes running through her oeuvre: female empowerment; the meaning of time; the complex dynamics of intimate relationships; the anonymity of urban life, mobility and also globalization.

Gertler currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She is currently in residence at the Guesthouse – a part of the Cork Artist Collective. Prisoner of Damp Patches is April Gertler’s first solo exhibition in Ireland. She is also Director and Founder of Picture Berlin – a hybrid artist residency/art academy concentrating on issues in contemporary photography and art. Special thanks to Cork Arts Collective and Guesthouse, Cork.
