Taylor Galleries is delighted to present Preoccupations, an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Diarmuid Delargy.

Preoccupations represents various studio concerns of Delargy’s that have developed over the past nine years. There are several recurring themes, all of which are based around the dominant motif of Art and Extinction. These works are a visual conversation, loosely referencing and informed by time spent in print-making. There are three distinct preoccupations under the main heading Art and Extinction: The Shark / Tope Series, The Circus Animals’ Desertion and, finally, The Crete Series.

As a painter, sculptor and print-maker Diarmuid Delargy has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. He has received numerous bursaries and spent time working with the Artists’ Union Workshop in Berlin. He has received many awards for his work and completed an acclaimed suite of 24 prints based on a text by Samuel Beckett which was exhibited at venues across America including MOMA, San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York. He studied at the Slade School of Art in London and is a member of Aosdána, the Royal Ulster Academy (RUA), and the Royal Society of Painter/Printmakers, Bankside, London.
