“If you have a very big idea, a big theme, you need a small format” – Anslem Keifer.
little changes is an exhibition of new paintings by Irish artist Colm Rooney.
Rooney uses painting and photography to modulate and distort one another, oscillating between stenciled imagery and re-imagined realities. The work, influenced by Caspar David Friedrich, Anslem Kiefer and Samuel Becket, is on a physically diminutive scale and thematically it draws on Ireland’s many perspectives, vicissitudes and mythologies.
Colm Rooney is a graduate of Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork and more
recently a graduate of the Music and Media Technology Masters in Trinity College Dublin.
