Categorised exclusively as a ‘painting exhibition’, McSweeney presents formal arrangements consisting of video, projection, neon light and raw materials; which subsequently force the surfaces of the gallery in to the context of one large painting. Reaching beyond chromatic value, McSweeney pursues perfection while simultaneous acknowledging the futility of this endeavour. The joviality of ‘Sincerely, COLGATE’ seeks to contemplate what painting could be rather than should be. Catalogue: Sincerely, COLGATE - Text by Aoife Power
