For Here There Is No Place is an exhibition of work made in the Burren by Timothy Emlyn Jones over the last three years. The drawings enquire into the contemplative mode of attention that an apparently empty landscape or seascape can invoke, and they reflect the rich range of responses that emerge gradually when your attention departs from linguistic engagement in favour of the visual. The exhibition’s title, which is also the title of one the paintings, is taken from a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke that addresses the transformative nature of surrender to looking.
