This 30cm x 30cm print depicts the historic Four Courts building in Dublin inspired by the style of Piet Mondrian. The first court session in the Four Courts took place in 1796. The building was severely damaged during the 1922 Civil War, along with almost 1000 years of archives in the public records office which was located at the rear of the building. The Four Courts is a building of great historical, cultural, architectural and of course legal, significance.
‘Snapshots of Dublin’ is the first in the Snapshots series which was shown for the first time at Art Source 2019 in the RDS in Dublin. The idea for the Snapshots series has developed from my interest in the built environment and the rich tapestry of history which is embedded within each and every building, street and city.
I paint using clean lines and strong colours. These bold blocks of colour suit the subject of largely urban environments, taking ‘snapshots’ of views which are the familiar evocative pieces that make up the jigsaw of the world we inhabit.
