'OXYgen' ma Golden ʻO Thread Gallery, Belfast, kahi hōʻikeʻike o nā hana hou a Dublin-based artist, Aoife Shanahan. Hoʻonohonoho ʻia nā paʻi gelatin kālā monochrome he 14 ma ke ʻano he pālua, ʻelua pūʻulu ʻekolu a ʻoi aku ka nui o ʻeono. 

Joyce, Māhele #2, a Māhele #3 (2018) o nā ʻano like, nā hiʻohiʻona a pau e like me ka grid-like. I ka wā mua, ua like lākou me ka ʻānai lanahu - ʻaʻole i nā mea kūlohelohe, akā i nā mea ʻenehana, ʻo ia kā lākou hui semi-regimented o nā mea ākea a me ke kūpaʻa. Hoʻomanaʻo ko lākou mālama ʻana i ka hopena paepae i ka polokalamu hoʻoheheʻe kiʻi, ka ʻokoʻa paʻakikī o ka ʻeleʻele a me ke keʻokeʻo e hōʻike ana i nā mea hoʻokiʻekiʻe i hoʻolei ʻia. I ka nana pono ana nae, Joyce, no ka laʻana, loaʻa nā smudge a me nā leo, nā ʻano, nā laina lahilahi a me nā ʻāpana lepo - e like me ka pauka i ʻoki ʻia i nā laina me kahi pahi. 

Māhele #2 ʻoi aku ka paʻa loa - e like me kahi kikoʻī i ʻoki ʻia o kekahi skyscraper nui. Māhele #3 ua emi ka hana a me he mea lā e ola ana ma hope o ka crescendo o nā hanana i loko Māhele #2. Ua aie ʻo Joyce i kona poʻo inoa i ka ʻae ʻana a Shanahan i ka wā e "nānā ai ʻo ia i kēia ʻāpana no ka lōʻihi, e nānā mau ana ka silhouette o James Joyce me kāna pāpale kīʻaha kaulana." ʻIke pū wau i kēia pareidolia i koʻu holomua ʻana ma ka hōʻike, e hālāwai me nā nalu, nā mea kanu, nā haloo, mycelia, nā ʻano pōhaku a me nā galaxies, i loko o nā mea he nui, he hui pū ʻia o nā kaʻina hana i hoʻolālā ʻia. 

ʻO ke poʻo inoa hōʻikeʻike, 'OXYgen', kahi kuhikuhi i 'OxyContin', ka lāʻau opioid hoʻohui nui i hoʻohana ʻia i ka mālama ʻana i ka ʻeha. Loaʻa ma ke kānāwai ma ke kau ʻana, he lāʻau lāʻau hoʻomāinoino maʻamau, hoʻohana ʻia i loko o ka pauka a laila hoʻoinu ʻia a honi ʻia. Hoʻohana ʻo Shanahan i ka lāʻau lapaʻau ma ke ʻano pauka - maloʻo a me ka hoʻokuʻu ʻia, me he mea lā - e hana i kahi ʻano o nā kiʻi paʻi kiʻi, kahi ʻano kiʻi paʻi kiʻi ʻole i hoʻokumu ʻia e Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy a me nā mea ʻē aʻe. 

ʻO ka lua o nā hana e like me nā ʻāpana o nā ʻāina. Hoʻopili ʻia ka hana ma kahi ʻāpana ākea ākea keʻokeʻo, kahi i pelu ʻia ai ka pepa kiʻi e hana i hale lole, kahi i hoʻoheheʻe ʻia ai ka pauda narkotic ma mua o ka ʻike ʻia ʻana - ʻo ke poʻo inoa o ka series, 'Cascade', he hōʻailona paha i kēia kaʻina hana. . ʻO nā hopena i hana ʻia he evocative loa. In Pepa Pepa Pepa #17 (2019) a me ka Pepa Pepa Pepa #13 (2019), lilo ka laina keʻokeʻo i waena o ka ululāʻau me ka pahū o ka hana ma luna pono a ma lalo o ka 'papa honua'. Hoʻonui like ia i luna i ka canopy a hohonu i lalo. 

In Pepa Pepa Pepa #9 (2019) haʻalele nā ​​dribble i hoʻoheheʻe ʻia i nā ala pauka, e hana ana i nā filament keʻokeʻo liʻiliʻi, e like me ka hyphae e puka ana i loko o ka ʻeleʻele inky. I ka manawa like, hoʻomanaʻo wau i nā kiʻi lewa nocturnal, i hoʻopaʻa ʻia e ka ʻike ʻana o ke kukui uila ma nā wahi i kūkulu ʻia. ʻIke pū ʻia kēia neʻe micro a macro ma nā wahi ʻē aʻe o ka hōʻike, mai ka moʻo 'Waves' kikoʻī a hiki i nā wili a me nā ʻano galaxy. Kosmic #1 a Kosmic #2.

Hoʻonohonoho ʻia nā hana mai ka 'Seascape' a me 'Waves' mai ka liʻiliʻi a i ka nui a i ka liʻiliʻi hou. In Kahakai #4 (2018), hāʻule nā ​​nalu i nā ʻano pōhaku, e hoʻoheheʻe iā lākou i loko o nā kahawai o ka huʻa a me ka hoʻouna ʻana i ka ʻehu i ka lewa. In Kahakai #6 (2018) paʻi nā nalu me kahi ʻāina ʻāhuehue i ka seismic fluctuation, e like me nā pūʻali kaua ʻelua i kekahi au geological mamao. Hoʻomanaʻo ʻia wau i ka moʻo 'Matrix of Movement' a Tracy Hill, kahi e hana ai ka mea pena i ka ʻikepili mai ka ʻenehana geomatics pāʻoihana e hana i nā ʻāina monochromatic immersive. In Nā nalu #1 a Nā nalu #2, ʻo nā ʻano like me nā fungi e hoʻopili i nā wahi āpau i loaʻa, e hana ana i nā pūnaewele o nā gills, nā māwae a me nā ʻanuʻu; Ua like nō hoʻi lākou me ka hoʻokumu ʻana o ke one wrinkled a i ʻole ka ʻiʻo ma lalo o kahi microscope. ʻElua 'Seascapes' hou aʻe e hoʻopau i kēia kaʻina hoʻopaneʻe, kahi e piʻi ai ka nui a me nā kikoʻī a ma hope iho - he kiʻi hoʻohālike paha no ka euphoric wikiwiki o ka mea hoʻoulu a me ka iho ʻana ʻole. 

Wahi a ka ʻatikala hale kiʻi, he hoʻāʻo nā hana e hōʻike i ka hiki ke hoʻohana ʻia ka abstraction ma ke ʻano he "ʻano kūpono e kamaʻilio ai [...] ʻO Shanahan, ka mea i loaʻa ke kēkelē i ka lāʻau lapaʻau, ua hana ikaika ʻo ia me kahi mea maʻamau, ʻo ka mōʻaukala i piha i ka palaho a me ka addiction nui ma muli o ke kūʻai aku ʻana e kāna mea hana ʻo Purdue Pharma, nona ka ʻohana billionaire Sackler. ʻAʻole kēia ka manawa mua i hui pū ʻia ai ke kiʻi a me ka lāʻau lapaʻau nui. Ua lawe pololei ʻo Nan Goldin - ʻo ia ʻo OxyContin addict - ma o kāna hui activist PAIN (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now) i ka ʻohana Sackler ma o ka hoʻokau ʻana i nā kūʻē i loko o nā keʻena hana kiʻi nui i pōmaikaʻi mai kāna mau makana philanthropic. Ua koi kēia i ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike Metropolitan ma New York, Tate Britain a me Tate Modern e wehe i nā plaque i kapa ʻia ka inoa o ka ʻohana. Eia naʻe, ma waho aʻe o kēia mau noʻonoʻo, ua hoʻokō nā hana a Shanahan i kahi nani a pohihihi i ko lākou pono ponoʻī. 

He mea pena kiʻi ʻo Jonathan Brennan ma Belfast.
