TWO SOLO EXHIBITIONS TO OPEN AT THE DOCK, FRIDAY 10th APRIL, 2015 @ 6 PM
EXHIBITION CONTINUES UNTIL SATURDAY 6th JUNE


FINLAY MACKINTOSH: SELECTED EVERYTHING

JAMES KING: SITE, SOUNDS & SYLLABLES: RECENT PERFORMANCES

Curated by Alice Lyons, two exhibitions will highlight the extraordinary work of artists who have totally different approaches and experiences of making art. Derry based James King and Glasgow based Finlay Machkintosh’s solo exhibitions will tie in with the theme of the National Festival of Bealtaine which celebrates individuals creativity throughout their lifetime and in particular the work of senior artists. Both Finlay and James have been committed to the development of their art over a lifetime and will be bringing decades of experiences and practice to life in the development of these exhibitions.
Since his retirement from thirty years of teaching Drama at the University of Ulster, James King, has developed an interest in voice performance, performance and sound poetry. His work is connected to street theatre, street art and clowning, much of his regular practice takes place in Derry. He performs at events in Belfast and in his home town of Derry City. On Saturday 25th April, James will participate in Q & A with arts writer and critic Joanne Laws at 2pm in Gallery 1, a free event. This event is a chance to ask questions of an experienced and committed performance artist and to find out more about this burgeoning art form. Gallery 1 will also feature drawings, photos and books that document King’s activities. The exhibition will continue through April till Saturday 6th June.

Finlay Mackintosh has been making art over the decades of his life. He has been deeply committed to the practice of painting. He has spent much of his focus on subjects and locations that are deeply personal; and which express a romantic association with the urban and rustic. The paintings form a series of references from personal reflections of familial interiors to the wider notion of the city, including Glasgow, his love of other cities such as London and Venice are also inspiration for his works. His paintings are highly sophisticated while appearing to be rapid and rough hewn. The surfaces and textures and materials are varied and fluent. Very much framed in the vernacular tradition of painting, he expresses a confidence that one might expect from years of engagement with materials and subject. Every painting seems a new adventure in finding a painted language for the location.

On Saturday 11th April, Finlay will give a guided tour of his exhibition at 2pm.
