Dublin: Mór Prints

Dublin: Mór Prints

‘Mór 2019’, an exhibition of large-scale original prints, opens at the Graphic Studio Gallery. Original prints are not frequently made in expansive dimensions, partially due to the physical constraints that the various mediums and printmaking apparatus can impose upon artists. This show presents work by artists who have created large-format editions, often pushing the limit of size constraint. Artists include Des Kenny, Cliona Doyle, Kate MacDonagh, Shane O’Driscoll and Gráinne Cuffe, as well as visiting artists who have worked at the Studio, such as Tony O’Malley, John Noel Smith, Maser, Maria Simonds Gooding and Gwen O’Dowd.
Mór 2019: 3 – 26 October

Paris: False Dawn

Paris: False Dawn

‘A False Dawn’, an exhibition of works in porcelain sculpture, embroidery and drawing by Ursula Burke, shows at the Centre Culturel Irlandais. Burke’s practice deals with issues of representation and identity, exploring abuses of power in both social and political spheres. She uses the Northern Irish context as a critical point of departure to approach international concerns. Following this, photographer Roseanne Lynch exhibits. Architecturally inspired, Lynch works primarily with a large format camera to produce her sculptural, black and white images.
Ursula Burke: 21 September – 27 October; Roseanne Lynch: 7 November – 20 December

Enniskillen; Private Life

Enniskillen; Private Life

An exhibition celebrating the life and work of Jeremy Henderson (1952 – 2009) continues at the Enniskillen Castle Museums. Henderson’s chief subject was the landscape of Ireland, particularly Fermanagh, where the beauty of the surrounding area was tempered by ongoing violence, leading him to create large, brooding paintings. Henderson was also known for his public murals, such as those on the William Jefferson Peace Centre in Enniskillen.
