Issue is the first solo exhibition in New York of I rish artist Tom Molloy which examines power\, explores the ways in which it has been perverted\, and asks global questions about morality.  An enthusi astic collector of images\, and working through drawing\, collage\, photogr aphy and sculpture\, Molloy challenges perceptions by creating ambiguous wo rks\, and investigating the overlap between representation and association. His deliberately minimal representations of significant political and hist orical moments are both subtle and highly charged. The clean simplicity of Molloy’s aesthetic conveys conceptually rich\, multi-layered meanings.    

\n

Issue examines the veracity of photography through the el ective and selective nature of images. These have been ruptured: either thr ough editing\, cropping\, transference into another medium\, or in their pr esentation in a non-linear chronology breaking their historical precedent. The idea of photography as an arbiter\; the interface between image making and historical fact\, is the principal focus of this exhibition.

\n

Th e eight works featured in the exhibition address dominant themes of history and photography - illustrating several momentous Twentieth Century events\ , and exploring the subsequent implications for contemporary society. Tom M olloy’s work\, interrogates the communication and perception of truth\, and different possibilities that could\, and have arisen globally as a consequ ence of man’s inhumanity to man.
