Shaping Ireland: Landscapes in Irish Art

April 11, 2019

Spanning 250 years, Shaping Ireland: Landscapes in Irish Art comprises artworks by fifty artists, exploring the relationship between people and the natural world. 

 

In addition to celebrated artists such as George Barret, Paul Henry and Jack B. Yeats, it includes contemporary practitioners like Dorothy Cross, Willie Doherty, Kathy Prendergast and Sean Scully, as well as emerging artists including Niamh O’Malley, Caoimhe Kilfeather and Samuel Laurence Cunnane. 

Encompassing a range of artistic media and perspectives, this exhibition examines different land types and uses, revealing the significant role artists have played in visualising aspects of human impact on the environment.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, featuring a selection of expert responses by individuals such as Paula Meehan (poet), Mary Reynolds (landscape designer), Duncan Stewart (environmentalist) and John Tuomey (architect), among others.
