This new work will also respond to the modern town and what it means to the local community. This exhibition will continue his interest in creating psycho-geographies of places, mixing verbal histories with personal experience.
The research for this show includes interviews will local residents and retailers from the area as well as looking at Dún Laoghaire’s past, both historical and personal. The paintings aim to capture a psychological portrait of the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area and its people. They will give the viewer a new way to view a place known so well.
