Featured Artist: Donal Moloney
Words by Patrick Kirk-Smith
Donal Moloney has work at A Small View, in Gostins Arcade until Saturday 1st October. His work is also on display as part of the John Moores Painting Prize at the Walker Art Gallery, in an exhibition running alongside Liverpool Biennial 2016.
Liverpool is at an incredibly exciting place in its history now. The Baltic Triangle has achieved its mission of becoming a hub for artists and creative businesses at all stages of their careers. And that ethos has spilled over to the North Docks, and is even beginning to pop up on the high street, with shops like Rex Concept Store on Bold Street. So when, Manchester based painter, Donal Moloney’s name popped up in two galleries, that couldn’t be further detached, it seemed like an unmissable opportunity for Art in Liverpool to get on film.
His exhibition at A Small View is a really useful introduction to his painting at The Walker, and also a precursor to the next few years of his practice.
This film launches our YouTube channel, and will hopefully lead the way to an exciting hub for films in and around creative Liverpool. The full film can be found here.
