NEW Meditation Courses at Atelier Maser!

After a HUGELY successful pilot month of our meditation classes in August, we are delighted to announce our newest batch of courses. The courses will take place on weekday evenings and Saturday mornings throughout the month of October.

Alongside our professional meditation teacher Conor Creighton, we will be rolling out two evening courses on Monday and Tuesday nights, which are titled ‘Making Friends with your Mind’ and will run over 3 weeks.

The aim of this course is to increase awareness of your habit patterns, understand your thoughts, and develop compassion, emerging better equipped to protect the people around you, and the planet we live on.


And, for anyone who has a hectic schedule during the week, we are also be running 3hour meditation workshops on Saturdays.

These Saturday - stand alone events - are called ‘Mind Repair’ and will help participants to break bad habits, focus their minds and set intentions for how they want their life to be. People will leave with greater self-awareness, stronger emotional intelligence and a toolbox of happiness hacks to help them survive modern life.

Hope to see you guys there!

'Buff' film by Stephen Burke is now online!

You can can check out ‘Buff’ - a short film by Stephen Burke, on Vimeo from today!! Over the last three years, Stephen created the film in collaboration with Irish film maker Sean Clarke. The 16 minute feature is set in Dublin city and investigates the style and psychology behind buffing in Ireland.

Buffing is the name given to describe the removal of the painting over of graffiti. It is a daily task undertaken by councils, private home owners and contracted companies around the world. Through many years of investigation, and documentation, the film ‘Buff’ is developed from the perspective that buffing can be identified, and be critically engaged with, as a creative art form itself.

Stephen Burke Flyer

Stephen Burke is a contemporary Irish artist, currently living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. Since the age of fifteen Stephen has grown strong roots in the Irish street art community, and in more recent years, he has evolved his artistic practice into the realm of fine arts. Stephen has exhibited extensively across Ireland and the UK, including shows at Glasgow School of Art (UK), The Law Society of Ireland (IRL) and The Pipe Factory (UK).

Stephen creates work inspired by our shared public places and in doing so, he diverts our perception away from the conventional ideals associated with these spaces. The resulting artworks strive to bring a broader interest in the many irregular characteristics which make up
our built environment.

For ‘Utility’, Stephen’s exhibition at Atelier Maser, visitors will have the opportunity to see a new body of work which includes a collection of tiled paintings and a steel sculpture that are informed by, and recollective of the city landscape.

The exhibition at Atelier Maser will launch on Thursday 27th June 2019, and continue until Wednesday 17th July.

Aches - Distorted Identity

ACHESPOSTER_ATELIERMASER

Launching Atelier Maser’s exhibition programme for 2019, ‘Distorted Identity’ will showcase the work of internationally renowned contemporary muralist, Aches. Having undertaken a two month artist residency in Atelier Maser, Aches has created a new body of work especially for this exhibition - his premier solo show. The exhibition launches to the public on Thursday 14th March, 6-9pm.

Hailing from Dublin, Aches is most well known for his ‘glitch’ style of murals that can be found throughout Ireland and all around the globe.  

Having created work since the age of fifteen, Aches is a creative force to be reckoned with. Boasting an impressive repertoire of work, he has been invited to design and create original artwork for many projects around the world, in countries such as Denmark, Ireland, Hungary, Spain, Sweden, Miami, Scotland, Austria, Switzerland, England and USA. 

The artist’s practice is shared in equal balance between contemporary murals and studio work. He has collaborated with Irish artist Maser, and a series of international artists including Insane51 and Fork4.

ACHES_ATELIERMASER_1

Coining his father as a rich influence to his creative process, Aches has evolved his artistic practice through many styles over the years. Originating with traditional painting techniques and sketching as a teen, he progressed his painterly style into an impressive mural career, and most recently, Aches has evolved again into the realm of anti-alias and sub-pixel paintings, some of which will be on show at Atelier Maser.

He sees the process of painting, and indeed the process of creating, quite like a form of personal meditation.  A creative outlet that evokes a space of stillness for both the artist and the viewer. Having studied Visual Communications in NCAD, Dublin, Aches credits the design skills learned here for influencing his extremely precise and technical style of work.

ACHES_ATELIERMASER_3

With this new body of work ‘Distorted Identity’, Aches explores the contradictions that exist in the digital world that we live in today.  The work itself is centred around the potentially negative effects that are created by communicating through technology on a constant basis.

Digital apps are designed to make it so simple to connect with anyone, anywhere, yet in many cases it actually creates a bigger distance between us and the people who we are the closest with. Moreover, today’s generation are so used to communicating with friends that are identified by a digital photo on screen, rather than a true representation of the real person.  

It is so easy, and convenient, to be constantly in touch with each other online, however, because we are constantly updated about the lives of our friends - it almost gives us an excuse not to meet up in person.

ACHES_ATELIERMASER_2

Through his artwork, Aches has illustrated the idea of distorted identities through a series of hand crafted, pixelated portraits. Taking a digital photo as the starting point, each portrait has been created with a limited colour palette consisting solely of Red, Green and Blue colour variations.

The RGB palette is specifically selected to emanate the colours that we see most often - the colours on screen that create the digital representations of our friends. Hand mixing every colour to correlate to the onscreen pixel tones, Aches has created abstract representations of faces familiar to him - with intricate detail and many, many layers of paint (spray and acrylic). 

Up-close the work can be viewed as woven web of colour overlays, but from a distance - the portraits emerge. This allows the viewer to have multiple experiences of the same painting, which is paralleled with the idea of interacting with the many digital aliases of the same person.   

For the exhibition at Atelier Maser, Aches invites the viewer to take photos of the work on their phone.  The image captured will create a clearer representation of the person in the portrait, less pixelated and more life like - therefore bringing the image full circle.

THE EXHIBITION LAUNCHES ON THURSDAY 14TH MARCH 6-9PM, AND WILL RUN UNTIL 5TH APRIL (THU-SAT ONLY)

Peter Doyle - A Stag’s Head

Peter Doyle

Atelier Maser opens to the public with its debut show on the 7th of December 2018, hosting Donaghmede born painter Peter Doyle.

Self taught and trained, the young artist formerly represented by The Unit London, now lives and works in London borough of Hackney. Doyle’s work possesses a naive bravery, and works mostly with acrylic on canvas. Pastel tones and patterns set the backdrop for the majority of Doyle’s compositions. Overset with recurring motifs of women, horses and flowers, Doyle reinvents the still life with a charming intimacy. Having described his approach as ‘casual’, Doyle's work can be recognised by his immediate, definitive way of mark making.

The artist honed his skills painting graffiti rather than going to art school. This is evident in his work, his courageous and expressive style feels emancipated, and is a refreshing contrast from the standard art school graduate. Having displayed works in group shows in London, and his debut showing in Dublin’s Fumbally Exchange, the show promises to be a brilliant insight in to the progression of a young, prolific, Irish painter.
