Anthony Lyttle

09 Jun - 16 Sept 2012 |

The dates of this exhibition have been extended to remain open until the 16th of September.

Anthony Lyttle is Éigse's 2012 selected '059' artist and he creates an immersive space within the gallery by making a series of large-scale drawings and inter-related smaller works on paper.

Central to these drawings is the physical process of making, which involves the endless repetition of the same mark and the ensuing rhythmic energy of repetitive action.

As the drawings evolve, a shadow image forms and assumes a visual influence of the picture plane, resulting in a play of balance between the dominant and the recessive. Obscuring and camouflaging becomes the preoccupation in building a density of marks on the surface of the delicate paper.

Anthony Lyttle was born in Kenya, spending his childhood there and in Ethiopia before moving to Ireland in his teenage years. He studied Fine Art at NCAD and he did his MA in Fine Art Painting at Central St Martins. His most recent exhibition was ‘The White Mark’ at the Cross Gallery (Dublin) in 2011. He currently lives in Killedmond in Co Carlow.
This exhibition is curated by Denis Roche.
