Tempus Fugit - Time Flies is a new solo exhibition by Irish Artist Paula Pohli. The exhibition will open in darc space gallery, 26 North Great George's Street, Dublin 1, Ireland, September 7th, 2017 at 6pm and continues until October 6th. Dr Edward McParland will open the exhibition.

Featuring some 40 new works created between 2015 and 2017. The exhibition includes linocuts (handburnished), egg tempera paintings on panels and egg tempera brush drawings. Egg tempera paintings are made with egg yolk, pigments and water on gesso panels and paper. Additional unframed works will be available in portfolios.

Tempus Fugit is a subtle exhibition about the elusive and quick passage of Time, as expressed in paintings and prints of birds, insects, flowers, trees, barns etc. Life, decay, birth, death and the energy of life are themes of these new paintings and prints.

A highlight of the exhibition is a large calendarium, Time Flies, twelve linocuts of dead flies from January through to December. As a memento mori, it is a visual reminder that time flies from month to month and from one year to the next. Exhibited 2016 in the 135th Royal Ulster Academy Annual Exhibition, Ulster Museum, Belfast.

Paula Pohli took time to create a special exhibition on the theme of Time Flying.
