ʻO Ronnie Hughes wale nō hōʻike, 'Isobar', he 21 mau hana ma ka canvas, ke olonā a me ka plywood (mai 2020 a me 2021) a me 11 mau hana ma ka pepa (mai 2015). ʻO ka laulā mua he nui ka nui, ʻo ka mea nui loa he nui loa (214 x 183 knm). ʻO kēia ka loli ʻana o ka unahi, a me ka ʻoliʻoli ʻoliʻoli paʻi, e pā koke i ka piʻi ʻana i ke alapiʻi i ka The MAC's Upper Gallery.

Ma ke ʻano he poʻo inoa, 'Isobar' mea nui. ʻAʻole ma kona ʻano meteorological, akā ma ke ʻano o ka manaʻo o ka mea pena ma ke ʻano he 'conceit', he kiʻi o kahi mea noʻonoʻo "ua hoʻolālā mākou e hana i kahi ʻano o ka honua". ʻO nā hana i loko o kēia hōʻike piha i nā hale - grids, lattices, clusters, networks. ʻO ka hoihoi ma ʻaneʻi, ke noʻonoʻo ʻana i kekahi o nā ʻāpana, ʻo ia ka hoʻāʻo ʻana o ke kanaka e hoʻopaʻa i kahi mea i loko o ke ʻano e holo mau ana a ʻoi aku ma waho o nā palena o nā wahi a mākou e koho ai e kuhikuhi i kā mākou mau mea hana nānā, i kēlā me kēia manawa. 

Paʻa nā ʻili o nā kiʻi i nā meheu o ko lākou hoʻololi ʻana; ʻO nā ʻaoʻao paʻa i hoʻokiʻekiʻe ʻia e hōʻike i nā mea i pena ʻia ma luna, ua neʻe i ka unahi a i ʻole ke kūlana i ka wā o ke kaʻina pena. No laila, manaʻo kekahi i ka wā i hoʻokumu ʻia ai kahi armature mua, a i ʻole i ʻae ʻia ma ka liʻiliʻi loa, ʻo ka nui o nā helu kupaianaha o nā koho e hana me ka waihoʻoluʻu a me ke kaulike (a me ke kaulike ʻole) e hana ʻia ma ka ʻili o ka canvas, akā. ma mua o ka hoʻoholo mua ʻia. Hōʻike nā ʻili i nā ʻokoʻa maʻalahi i ka ʻike a me ka hoʻopau; ʻIke ʻia kekahi mau mea ʻeleʻele, ʻālohilohi nā mea ʻē aʻe, aʻo nā mea ʻē aʻe e loaʻa i kahi translucency like me Perspex - ka mālamalama a me ka pahū. Kūlana, 2020, aia nā ʻekolu o kēia mau ʻano like ʻole - he hopena o ka hoʻokolohua ʻana a Hughes me ka puaʻa a me ka co-polymer medium, me ka waiho ʻana a me ka glazing. 

Hoʻokaʻawale kekahi o nā canvases i kahi ʻano like ʻole a hana ma ke ʻano he pālua, i kekahi manawa me nā hopena like ʻole. In Hoʻoponopono, 2021, a ʻO Dazzle, 2021, no ka laʻana, ʻo ka hope, me he mea lā e heʻe ana ma hope o kahi tapestry, e like me ka verso muted o ka recto o mua o nā ʻāpana ʻāpana, nā ʻāpana a me nā kiko. ʻOi aku ka pīhoihoi o ka paʻa ʻana o ʻO Palimpsest, 2021, a Waltzer, 2021. ʻO ka mua he pūʻulu kaha kiʻi o nā leka e kau ana ma nā laina lipine ticker me ka pilina kala ʻokiʻoki (ʻo ia hoʻi, ke kiʻi nei ke kiʻi kiʻi i kahi memo ʻokoʻa ma kahi hui like ʻole o nā hana a hiki i ka contextualised e ka 'Artificial Birdsong' kaha kiʻi i ka lua. lumi). ʻO Palimpsest hoʻomaka ke ola ma ke ʻano he ʻano ʻokoʻa o ka like-nui Waltzer akā ua ʻokoʻa loa ka ulu ʻana – ʻo ke kiko ma ka leka 'i', ʻike pinepine ʻia a hoʻopā ʻia i ke kiko i uhi ʻia. Waltzer ma ka ʻaoʻao, ʻo ia wale nō paha ka hōʻailona o kā lākou hoʻomaka ʻana. 

Waltzer e hoʻomanaʻo ana i nā mea i hoʻopuehu ʻia o kahi pahu hole-punch. I ka nana 'ana nae, 'ike 'ia, 'a'ole i ho'okomo 'ia nā kiko kala ma ke kua i ho'ohehe'e 'ia, akā, ua ho'onohonoho pono 'ia i loko o ke ka'ina o nā pa'i pa'a. 'A'ole na'e like 'ole ka uhi 'ana, i kekahi manawa, 'ike 'ia ka hapa o luna ma lalo a ma nā wahi 'ē a'e e 'ae ana i kahi pahikakiwi lahilahi e 'ike i waho. E like me ka nui o nā hana a Hughes, ke manaʻo nei ʻoe ua ʻike ʻoe i ke ʻano kumu a i ʻole ka ʻōnaehana e pāʻani nei, ʻike koke ʻoe i nā ʻokoʻa - ʻo ka huhū o ka mea pena i kā mākou mau manaʻo e hoʻoweliweli nei e hoʻopau i ka hale. He mea hoʻowalewale ke koho ʻana i kēia mau nuggets: ʻo ka hui hoʻokahi o ʻekolu mau kiko i loko o kahi kāwele piha i ʻelua mau kikoʻī (ʻO Judder I, 2021); ke kūkaʻe kekee hoʻokahi i loko o ka lattice mānoanoa o nā kihi ʻākau (I loko o I, 2021); kahi i hoʻoneʻe iki ʻia i loko ʻO Dazzle, a laila. Eia naʻe, no ka hana ʻana pēlā, ʻo ka mālama ʻana i kēia mau mea ma ke ʻano he hoʻopunipuni haku mele, he mea hōʻemi. ʻO ka mea koʻikoʻi ke ʻano o kā lākou hana ʻana iā mākou me ka semi-consciously, e lawe mai ana i ka ikaika a me ka neʻe. ʻO lākou nā anomalies liʻiliʻi e hoʻohauʻoli ai i nā hana, kahi i "ʻae ai ʻo Hughes i ke ʻano [...] 

Māhele I, 2021, a Māhele II, 2021, he mau laina o ka laula mua, lua a me ke kula kiʻekiʻe ma ke ʻano keʻokeʻo keʻokeʻo. Ua like lākou me nā kiʻi schematic, ʻaʻole naʻe e hoʻokō i kēia hana. ʻAʻole paʻa loa ko lākou kūkulu ʻana i loko o nā palena o ke kāwele a ʻokoʻa ke ʻano o nā kiko e hui ai nā laina. Ke ho'āʻo nei ka maka e hoʻoholo i ke ʻano, e ʻike iā ia i loko o ka mokuʻāina ākea hoʻokahi akā ʻaʻole hiki - nui loa ka neʻe ʻana. ʻO nā hana ʻē aʻe, me nā ʻaiʻē Op-Art o nā nalu a me nā grids, loaʻa kēia ʻano o ka neʻe. Eia nō naʻe, ʻike ʻia ka hiki ke hoʻonui ʻia i ka lewa - me he mea lā e nānā ana mākou i kahi ʻāpana liʻiliʻi o kahi holoʻokoʻa nui aʻe ma waho o nā palena canvas - a i ka manawa, me he mea lā he ʻano paʻa ka hana o kahi hale i mau. ka neʻe ʻana a me ka hoʻonohonoho hou ʻana. 

He hauʻoli ka hoʻohana ʻana o ke kala a puni, ʻoi aku hoʻi i ka manawa kākau i ka hohonu o ka hoʻoilo. ʻO nā hana āpau i hōʻike ʻia ma 'Isobar' e hōʻike lohi iā lākou iho a uku i ka nānā lōʻihi a me nā kipa hou ʻana. Mai manaʻo wale ʻoe e noho mālie lākou ma mua o kou nānā hou ʻana. 

ʻO Jonathan Brennan kahi mea pena kiʻi multidisciplinary i hoʻokumu ʻia ma Belfast.
