The exhibition will include a succinct collection of the artist’s paintings, depicting scenes of figures and bodies, in the midst of movement or action. In each work, the subjects appear obstructed and broken, intending to, in his own words, ‘create tension and ambiguity on the canvas’.
Using digital collage, Healy has re-contextualised sourced material (a combination of collected images, and the artist’s own photography) to create new narratives. ‘I have built images that aim to evoke anxiety and a sense of unease,’ says Healy. ‘These painted images are constructed and deconstructed allowing them to toe the line somewhere between figuration and abstraction, reality and fiction’.
