Drawing Installation at Avenue Road Gallery, Dublin

In June 2013 my drawing installation Protest Drawing Traced Transferred was selected for a group exhibition at Avenue Road Gallery, Portobello, Dublin – curated by Jennette Donnelly.

Protest Drawing Traced Transferred , pigment on wall, 188cm x 167cm, June 2013

 

A  drawing traced from a newspaper image of the Shell to Sea Protests in Rossport, Co.Mayo. The tracing was enlarged to 188cm x 167cm and transferred directly onto the gallery wall using red ochre pigment – a material traditionally used in the transferring of images onto gessoed boards in icon and fresco painting. This work is a quiet drawing of protest using subtle graffiti done using an traditional form of image making from art history to create an ephemeral artwork documenting the transfer of a protest against oil multinationals as they expand to remote parts of the world.
