James Hanly: Recast

To some of us James Hanly is Mr RHA, the artist we most associate with the space in terms of his presence there and continual association. Recast is a body of over 100 drawings of statues which he worked on during lockdown in his home studio on the North Strand.

Drawn from photos, thumbnails and notes of hundreds of statues he encountered over two decades of travel. He has taken this immutable monuments, faithfully rendering their modest or majestic poses, before  making gently comic or satirical interventions, whatever the rhetoric of the figure suggests.

It’s all about the supporting cast in this instance, new life and contemporary relevance being brought to bear on their imperiousness.

RHA from Thursday August 24 until Sunday October 1.
