Yew Wood Venues is delighted to host ‘Ether and Verse’, a series of 8 large oil paintings being exhibited in the Glass Atrium at Mall Arts Centre, Youghal by visual artist Maria Tanner Cohen in July next.
“Ether and Verse” is a body of work that was developed by the artist over a two year period. The large scale of the paintings offers an encounter with an originating codice of geometric forms. “Ether and Verse” is presented as an alphabet where each geometric signature resonates in its own visual autonomy, yet when seen within the context of the greater body of work, it composes a Verse that speaks of mystical and hidden architecture intrinsic within the fabric of nature itself.
