I am hosting a solo exhibition "Retrospect" in Derry City, N. Ireland. The show will run from November 29th to Thursday 5th December. The opening of the exhibition will be at 7pm on Friday 29th November and everyone is welcome.
The exhibition is a real milestone in my career for a number of reasons. It is the first solo show I will have in Derry, which has a special place in my heart as it is the largest city close to Buncrana where I grew up. I also attended the University for 4 years here before moving to study in Germany & then setting up my studio in Dublin. It has a sort of a homecoming feeling for me and I am excited to show the work to my "home audience". Being able to show my work to friends & family who normally don't see my work in person as I usually show in Dublin or abroad add's something very special to the event.
Being able to show these paintings in the building that used to serve as the Bloody Sunday Trust building seems to me like some kind of fate. The combination of all these elements will make for a very special show.
