Entrance – Janey Muir and Cordelia Underhill

Entrance is a space to introduce ‘things’ both material and abstract, undertaken by collaborating artists, Janey Muir and Cordelia Underhill.  Considering the transitory effects of material and the space it can occupy, the exhibition will continuously develop both during and after its presentation and will extend beyond the gallery into a series of off-site works.

You’re invited to join them for the Preview of the exhibition on Thursday 27 September between 5 and 8pm at the Cooper Gallery Project Space (formerly Lower Foyer Gallery), in the Crawford Building, DJCAD.

Entrance is the first exhibition to happen in the newly named Cooper Gallery Project Space. The space will act as a test-best to encourage experimental works, support DJCAD graduates, emerging artists and curators and to give them a massive opportunity to publicly present their work.

Janey Muir works with found material to build unsure temporary environments, offering a physical presence to match the sensation of social anxiety. Surfaces borrowed from the household and studio are presented askew, manipulating the surrounding environment and blurring architectural planes: walls become floors. Janey graduated from Master of Fine Art, DJCAD in 2010.

Cordelia Underhill collages, draws and paints on different surfaces; constructed and found. She uses line to define and open the space of drawing. The themes of her work are built upon figurative narratives found in the tension and space between figures or forms. Cordelia Underhill graduated with a practice-based PhD from DJCAD in 2010.
