I went to visit the recent exhibition at the Douglas Hyde Gallery the other day, twas a great show....I recommend checking it out if anybody happens to be around that neck of the woods.

The group exhibition is entitled 'Last'

It was about edgelands, liminality, and the borders of the known; Last pushes beyond those boundaries towards a less familiar place where everyday structures have either been eroded or disintegrated. Last might be said to reflect a mood of anxiety, a struggle for survival, and the possibility of transformation. From another perspective, however, it is a simple exhibition of twenty recent works by Irish or Irish-based artists that has no particular meaning.

Last includes works by the following artists:

Stephen Brandes, Peter Burns, Elaine Byrne, Oliver Comerford, Kevin Cosgrove, Gary Coyle, Paul Doran, Damien Flood, Cliona Harmey, Wendy Judge, Nevan Lahart, Stephen Loughman, Sinead Ni Mhaonaigh, Paul Nugent, Mark O'Kelly, David Sherry, Sonia Shiel, George Warren

Here are a couple of works from it..........
