Urban images and the impact of streetscapes on the eye form the basis of his work “Cities: Dublin–Paris; Paris–Dublin”. He made his own camera on through a special process generated a unique perspective.
Doreen Kennedy: Her work “Flower Bed” was initially a photo based installation. 6" x 4" c-type photographic prints on wooden sticks were installed as part of the Sculpture in Context Exhibition, The National Botanic Gardens, in Dublin in 2009.
Roseanne Lynch’s areas of exploration are the recurring themes of light, truth, perception, representation, uncertainty and the understanding held within the unknowing. In her work “ Document”, she is creating a space where the viewer is allowed to become aware of their own presence.
Jean-Luc Morales : His work “Tokyo People”, printed following a platinum printing technique, is based loosely around the notion of capturing, in movie-stills format, the stories of individuals who form the human pulse moving through the Tokyo metropolis. The atmosphere is grey, urban and anonymous.
With the kind support of Ireland Fund of France, Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and Vermillon Design.
Opening hours: Monday-Thursday: 8.30am-7.30pm; Friday: 8.30am - 5.pm; Saturday: 8.30am to 2pm
