Ronnie Hughes: Strange Attractors
Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) is delighted to present a major solo exhibition of the artist Ronnie Hughes. One of Ireland’s most dynamic painters, Hughes’s elegant and poised works are executed with complex technical skill, yet retain a lightness of touch. While his finished paintings display a diversity of styles, at heart they share a common concern with the lived experience, and what Hughes has described as “the beauty, the fragility and the violence of being.”
Born in Belfast in 1965, but based in Sligo since the mid 1990s, Hughes studied at the University of Ulster, Belfast, receiving an MA in Fine Art in 1989. He has had numerous solo exhibitions throughout Ireland, including shows at the Butler Gallery, Institute, Dublin City Gallery; The Hugh Lane, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Ormeau Baths Gallery and Sirius Arts Centre. His work is held in many public and private collections in Ireland and internationally.
The exhibition is organised and toured By The Model, home of the Niland Collection, Sligo in partnership with LCGA. This exhibition is supported by the Arts Council Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme.
