About the Exhibition:
Anthony J. Faulder-Mawson is co-founder (in 1993 along with the artist, Ursula Mawson-Raffalt) of the artists association ) + ( = aO (spoken: convex plus concave equals a sphere) who have recently moved to and are now resident in North Leitrim.

He has spent more than thirty years inventing and developing new methods for constructing artworks for use with chance driven systems. “By using chance as an organising principle all of the possibilities within the system are represented. Those that are not used appear as potential energy as they “could have been” and those that are used appear as kinetic energy still interacting with the potential gaps. The energy generated is thus more felt than seen and so these works are, in effect, not painting at all in the normally accepted sense”

He constructs multi layered “textured” environments for site specific works wherein the focus unfolds from the centre_painting_to embrace all other creative disciplines.

He has also (in 1992) invented a method of texturing light which led to the invention and development of the “light painting” the first of which was presented in Berlin on the occasion of the last total eclipse of the sun of the 20th century _ these are ephemeral works that have height width depth and duration, are in a state of constant flux and which will also form part of this exhibition

This exhibition is the culmination of a residency at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton which has been supported by Leitrim County Council and the Arts Council.
