Oliver Sears Gallery, Molesworth Street, launches ‘Jerusalem’, an exhibition of twelve new paintings by Belfast artist, Colin Davidson. Continuing the theme of large-scale portraits, Davidson turns his attention to the ancient, mystical and multi-denominational city of Jerusalem. The series consists of twelve individuals with different religious, professional and personal backgrounds, who live and work in the city. Drawing upon his experience growing up in Belfast during the Troubles, Davidson identifies and captures in paint the tensions that exists in every Jerusalem resident and the city’s unique atmosphere.
