DLR Lexicon Collection, Dún Laoghaire. Councillor Lettie McCarthy, Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Region Council went to the official opening of the Brian Fay exhibit, A Mobile Living Thing. With the Cathaoirleach were, left to right, Vasco Purser, Brian Fay, Sonja Kroll and Tess Purser. Picture by Peter Cavanagh These work with paper by Jellet from 1932 to 1939 mark a change in her art work from abstraction to a return to even more naturalistic forms of paint. Brian Fay has actually made a collection

of brand-new drawings that respond to the physical properties of these works as they slowly age, and also to the life of Jellett herself. Together they can be seen as a representation on schedule, both clock time and our very own lived time. The title of the exhibition’ A mobile living thing ‘originates from Jellett’s writings on the making of paint and here Fay uses it to think about these four paintings as having a life and also afterlife of their very own. The exhibit includes Fay’s new drawings and the 4 paintings by Mainie Jellett. Image– Peter Cavanagh
