Matter Mammal Oil Soar is an experiment in art writing which explores the work of visual artist Orla Whelan. Playfully subverting conventions of art criticism, this publication reimagines notions of authorship, advocacy and agency, giving critical voice to the artist while painting a fuller picture of what is at play within an art practice, an exhibition and a body of work.
With an essay by Noah Lawler and contributions from Dr. Rowena Hall and Lorna Whale, each text offers alternative insights into themes that inform Whelan's work, while considering what can be said about painting, colour and the transcendent potential of art.
Matter Mammal Oil Soar was designed by Ruth Martin and received support from the Arts Council of Ireland through a Visual Art Bursary.
