Indepth Arts News:

"Borderline: Paul McKinley, Robert Carr and Sufjan Stephens."
2005-12-15 until 2006-01-30
FOUR
Dublin, , IE Ireland

Four is pleased to present Borderline, which combines the work of three artists, each distinct in character and tone, but sharing astounding levels of skill and formal craftsmanship. Paul, Robert and Sufjan are specific in their concerns and motivations and each practice has an exclusive intrinsic resonance. Each practice is independently meaningful and the choice to position them together stems from an interest in looking at what might emerge from an encounter with this particular combination of elements in this particular context and whether placing them together confirms or alters how we perceive them as individual entities. With a particular interest in the possibility of an additional subconscious element emerging through ones experience of these elements.

Robert's work to date has involved making objects from elemental building blocks, structured by a geometrical logic. He has focused his work on the use of visual rhythms, patterns and symmetries, on the effects of scale on perception, and on methods of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Paul McKinley was born in Birmingham, UK, in 1973. He graduated from Sheffield's Hallam University with a BA(HONS) in Fine Art Painting in 1996. He has a membership studio in Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, Dublin. Exhibition include a solo show in the Market Place Arts Centre, Armagh (2003) and the Crawford Open 4 (Cork 2003); RHA Annual Exhibition Invited (Dublin 2004). Paul was also awarded a commission from 'Breaking Ground', Ballymun's percent for art programme, in 2003 and a Ballinglen Arts Fellowship in Ballycastle, Mayo in 2004. Forthcoming Group shows include 'Fused 05' curated by Noel Kelly.

A musician who plays over twenty instruments and also a fiction writer, Stevens' guitar-based folk rock places him squarely and firmly in the category of indie pop/progressive folk/indie rock/singer-songwriter/chamber pop/lo-fi. Within the wide range of his interests and subject matter, Stevens' music is tightly focused, intimate and melodic.
