Provenance
From his exhibition Static TV, Butler Gallery, 2007

Nevan Lahart is from Kilkenny and visited the Butler Gallery as a child. His exhibition Static TV, at Butler Gallery in 2007 included over ninety-five of Lahart’s TV paintings - cutout TV shapes that created a framework for containment. These ‘static’ TV images while undeniably still, have a narrative life to them that fuels our imagination. The paintings have a raw, roughly hewn quality to them and often include distinctive cartoon-like typography. The exhibition featured video projections, which allowed Lahart to realizelarge-scale versions of the TV’s. Lahart stumbled across the motif of the television and found it perfectly suited his needs at that time in his practice.
