Event description

Description

To open the new series of Artist's Talks, ArtNetdlr presents Patrick Graham, widely regarded as Ireland’s most important contemporary artist, for a historic conversation about his career.

Graham is credited by art historians with changing the face of Irish painting with his exquisite draftsmanship and expressive layering of images and words in mixed media works on paper and monumental canvases, and has been recognized as 'Ireland's finest draughtsman' and a genuine 'artist's artist' . The subject of numerous museum exhibitions, he has impacted artists on both sides of the Atlantic, while praised by art critics and historians.

Graham's paintings and drawings are a magnificent and unique balancing act of strength and fragility, “this raw, vital, primal, visceral, sexual, physical, emotional, skin tearing kind of notion, rising all the time, raising you up like great music”.

"Patrick Graham's paintings are masterpieces... on a grand physical, emotional and intellectual scale... they are among the most complicated, salient reflections on modern existence that have been made in the last decade."
