"Desire Path is a contemporary exploration of gestural trace. repetitive form and the space that exists between the two, impelled by the drive within to mark a personal path. These new works by Andrew Vass and Nuala O'Donovan present a glimpse into the landscape of the inner self - the repetitions, retracing, constructions and layerings, which form the structure of our thought process. Vass's drawings plot the paths between vision and decision, creating an intricate matrix of trace, line, erasure and space. While O'Donovan's complex sculptures develop from the repetitive application of fractal scale. Both artists move between the space of their inner world and the space of the perceptual world, looking for the right path to take."
