Michael Warren: Light, gravity & distance

PRESS RELEASE June 7 - August 10 .

The Crawford Municipal Art Gallery is delighted to present new work by the sculptor Michael Warren entitled Light, gravity & distance.

Known primarily for his site-related, large outdoor works, Warren's new work draws less attention to the making of his work and has created smaller scale steles individual wall panels which are intended to look almost 'unmade' or existing as 'found' objects.

While outwardly minimalist and austere, his sculptures are not cold, remote or flawless, but have a sense of human aspiration and achievement and celebrate natural materials of beauty.

Born in Dublin in 1950, Micheal Warren studied at Bath Academy of Art and at the Belle Arti di Brera (Milan). A member of Aosdana he has exhibited and received national and international commissions and in 2001 Warren was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Architecture Award.

A specially commissioned colour-illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
