Isabel Nolan at Gallery Side 2

Installation view with A Small Place Among Visible Things, 2010, polyethylene, jesmonite, paint, MDF, 23.5 x 31 x 25 cm

Isabel Nolan’s Tokyo debut exhibition “clocks and seasons and promises” presents a selection of her recent watercolors, drawings and small-scale sculptures. The  works show Nolan’s versatility with different media: shapes that appear in the watercolors migrate into sculptures and relief installations. Yet, Nolan’s distinguishing trait is her romantic notion of personal expression that supersedes any formal amalgamation of modernist styles one can spot in her work. Even her six meter sculpture commissioned for the Dublin Airport retains the delicacy of touch that characterizes the smaller objects on view at Gallery Side 2. The show will be open through January 14th.
