Thisisnotashop is proud to present an exhibition of new paintings by Dublin based artist Mark Grehan. Colours and lines are layered to form images where several spaces coexist within a singular picture plain. For the viewer an image that has an apparent balance reveals composition variations on further investigation.

Photography and image analysis are fundamental to Grehans practice. Gathering visual material on a daily basis Grehan explores this research using several computer programs. The results are then brought to the studio where they are introduced onto surfaces with paint and drawing materials. Without working towards a predetermined resolution the artist includes creative development within the artworks execution and in so doing opens the work up to alternative decisions and unforeseen outcomes.

Auralog is a collaborative project by Anthony Kelly (Ireland), Slavek Kwi (Czech Rep), Seán McCrum (Ireland) and David Stalling (Ireland). This project is a collection of sound postcards, aural objects framed by silence, which seek to relate the sounds and timeframe of Newfoundland to the specific place of thisisnotashop and redefine the experience of space and time through electronic and actual sound.

During the investigation of a long-term project entitled Shorelines, Auralog travelled to Newfoundland in June 2008 to collaborate with a group of Canadian artists in the creation of numerous sound recordings. The Canadian artists, Angela Antle, Pierre LeBlanc and Anne Troake, will be sending their audio postcards as part of this event.
