The Exchange: Sinead Cullen





Create Inspire Transform


Friday evening I was helping out
 at the wonderful opening of Sinead  Cullen's exhibition.

Entitled " Create Inspire Transform" her show featured a selection of paintings in the main space and fish bowl gallery.

Walking into the space, you cannot help but be completely immersed in the energetic chaos of her paintings.

This enigmatic surrey of energy is implied by means of the movement she creates in them, brush strokes she noted that were inspired by her passion for dance.




This chaos is beautifully displayed through her paintings.

Each of these paintings Sinead has replicated a specific and at times un marked journey into the world of colour versus light, and chaos versus tranquility.

I was drawn towards the movement and the elegant yet visually stunning traces of the brush strokes.

 To me each painting conveyed a dance of colours unassumingly traveling through a utopia of an unknown world.

Sinead then spoke on how she was very passionate about celebrating freedom of expression through movement. 

Her paintings are very much metaphors for such desire to display such freedom. Kinetic movement of such inspiration seems like a tangible substance upon closer inspection.

 Reminding of Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase", where his desire to express movement  seems very much akin to Cullen's approach and technique.


Her work also draws from you an underlying sense of gratification in being able to express. 

This is something Cullen has noted of her work is that she hopes her work can inspire others, and find their own creative passion to express their movement. 

To this I will finally add that if there is something you should take from visiting this exhibition, it is that through movement and desire , you obtain passion. 

A passion to make unattainable thoughts a reality , and an overwhelming sense of motivating desire to pursue your dreams.
