Needless to say, we’ve been front row for Niall Staines for some time now. His commissioned cover for our December 2020 edition still stands out as one of the succinct snapshots of that time. Isolation is his collection of ideas and inspiration which “portrays the rollercoaster of emotions that came with being isolated from the rest of the world. It unravels the excruciating never ending days that stretched on and on to the mindless, never ending sessions spent doom-scrolling through social media.” This new collection of limited edition prints (including Glendalough) will also feature a new collection of digital compositions.
Hang Tough Contemporary (Exchequer Street) until February 27
Niall Staines will be in conversation, with Totally Dublin editor Michael McDermott, in Hang Tough Contemporary on Thursday February 24 at 6.30pm. Tickets free but limited.
