Family Ties - Gingles and Gingles in The Irish Arts Review


‘Gingles and Gingles’ is a collaborative exhibition at Dublin’s Peppercanister Art Gallery between father/ daughter artists Graham and Lisa Gingles. Born in Larne Co Antrim, Gingles Sr is well known for his complex and intriguing sculptures. These are usually housed in hand made boxes or reliquaries, although sometimes recently an old suitcase has served this purpose. Based in Valencia Spain, Lisa Gingle’s works are small, feminine drawings, overlaid on reclaimed pages and manuscripts- playful and fun and with a strong gothic undertow of foreboding, mixed with dark humour. Images of memory and place mixed with despair and resolution create an interesting dialougue between two generations of this talented artistic family. Gingles and Gingles 7-30 September.
