Inside Out by Margo McNulty & Sculptures and lithographs by Eamonn O’Doherty

This exhibition is based on a body of work created over the last three years, where the artist Margo McNulty deals with themes of hidden history, memory and place with aspects of everyday life and experience. McNulty constructs a visual language that expresses the intricacies of memory, creating arenas for identity to be revealed and understood in the broader context of the past. Furthermore McNulty is influenced by geography, agrarian culture and certain traditions inherent in Irish Culture. The exhibition includes lithographs, etchings, photo-etchings and lambda prints. The large-scale lithographs are close-ups, microscopic portals to the past and as McNulty states “Tracing, drawing and etching the images animate the past. Abandoned places and objects, still in time, exhale again.” Although an accomplished printmaker, the artist adds video as a means of exploring her relationship with the past. McNulty studied fine art in GMIT and completed a masters in Fine Art at NCAD. She is currently a member of Graphic Studio Dublin.

Eamonn O’Doherty is best known for his large-scale public sculptures which stand in Ireland, UK and USA. Among these are landmark works such as the ‘Tree of Gold’ in Central Bank Plaza in Dublin, the quincentennial sculpture in Eyre Square Galway and the ‘The Great Hunger Memorial’ in Westchester, New York. O’Doherty is also a skilled printmaker, painter and photographer. In a parallel career, O’Doherty graduated with a degree in Architecture in UCD and was awarded a Visiting Scholarship to Harvard University. He was for many years a Senior Lecturer in Architecture in DIT and decided to retire to make art full time in 2002. In this exhibition O’Doherty’s shows lithographs and sculptures, which reflect his ironic viewpoint and sense of ‘Irishness’.
