A two-hander exhibition by Shane O’Driscoll and Joby Hickey. O’Driscoll is a Cork-based printmaker and visual artist whose silkscreen prints are ubiquitous of late, forming part of the OPW and National Gallery collection. Employing vibrant colour blocks with curvilinear shapes balanced by white space, O’Driscoll’s balances contemporary resonances with nostalgic nods across his work. Hickey’s analogue photographic techniques bring a sense of found footage to his work. He utilises a photographic glass plate process, which requires the photographic material to be coated, sensitized using silver salts, exposed and developed within a 15-minute time span. Images of moons, astronauts and skies form the backbone of his work for Full Turn.
