Eyes peeled – eight artists to watch in 2019 by Art Critic Cristín Leach


“Marcel Vidal made a big black sooty splash in a corner of the RHA with White Noise, his contribution to the 2018 Futures show. In 2018, he also impressed with his solo show Silverfish at The Dock in Carrick-on-Shannon. His installations are dark, apocalyptic and occasionally dangerous (White Noiseincluded razor wire), and the contrast between the restrained, clean elegance of his works on canvas and the drama of his three-dimensional work is part of what give his installations their edge.”
