An exhibition looking at historical and influential figures across the Black Atlantic, runs at the ArtisAnn Gallery at 70 Bloomfield Avenue, Belfast from Wednesday 6th October to Saturday 30th October 2021.
Ciarán’s most recent work is inspired by diaspora and how this can be translated in art.
He has received a number of notable commissions, including for the African and Caribbean Support Organisation Northern Ireland (ACSONI) commemoration of the slave trade. His work is included in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s permanent collection.
Ciarán is a Fine Art graduate of Ulster University, specialising in painting. Within his practice, oil paint is used on canvas with raw mediums such as wax or plaster, adding dynamism and depth to the work. Collage and found imagery are both an integral part of his practice.
You can also buy art from this exhibition through the Own Art scheme which gives you an interest-free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).
