Tear-XXVI

Tear - a series of collages

"images exist for themselves. We are intended not to see beyond them, but merely to see them, or to see because of them. The things are themselves, they don't necessarily directly refer to something else, but in being themselves they are caught in a web of meaning and reference. … it becomes difficult to talk about images without talking about the way those images are pieced together, and its just as difficult to talk about the organising structure, the form that propels the piece, without talking about individual images, for they are both born of the same stuff. They both draw their life not just from a feeling but from a feeling structure."

Moyna Flannigan, Stare

Maman

Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow
30 May - 2 Nov, 2014

For GENERATION Flannigan has created a new body of work for her exhibition entitled Stare. She draws on the story of Adam and Eve in her series of drawings The First People to reflect an underlying conflict between individualism and conformity. Her paintings focus on the archetypal figure of Eve, an original model, which she reinvents for our times.

Moyna Flannigan: New Work

After You've Gone (II)

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh
31 July - 17 October 2010

Event: In Conversation with Keith Hartley, Chief Curator, on Monday 4 October 2010, 12.45pm, Gymnasium Lecture Theatre, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

New Work by Moyna Flannigan forms part of What you see is where you're at: Part 3, the third major wave of displays celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

"The women in Flannigan's paintings are at once victims and potential threats. As they gasp their last breath their provocatively splayed, stick-like limbs and wasp-like torsos make them look like insects, spiders or scorpions still capable of inflicting a last deadly bite or sting………

Flannigan's new paintings are among the freest and most spirited works she has produced. They still delight in the absurdities and incongruities of life that were such a part of her earlier paintings, but now everything has been raised to a more mythic, dreamlike level."
