This exhibition marks Jim Mooney’s return to painting after many years working in other media and engages in a visual dialogue with the radical thinking of French philosopher and psychoanalyst Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. The work focuses on aspects of the body and desire, in particular the virtual bodies produced by Deleuze’s articulation of a Body without Organs and painting as hallucination.
Mooney states: ‘Painting is most imperatively and essentially, an experimental space, where orthodoxies can be challenged and critically evaluated. Establishing a space where my own habits of thought, my conceptualisations and practical procedures, are susceptible to interruption, contestation and reconfiguration.’
