Ciaran Harper: Solo Exhibition
Ciarán Harper's art examines the theories behind the diaspora of various peoples and how this life-changing event for an individual can be expressed in art, with the experience of the one reflecting the experience of the many. This is the inspiration for his most recent work.
Ciarán graduated in Fine Art from the Ulster University, Belfast, in 2016. While still an undergraduate, he completed several commissions and was included in several group exhibitions. After a successful sell-out degree show, including winning the prestigious Carson McDowell Award, Ciaran has gone from strength to strength. One of his pieces, After School, was purchased by the Arts Council of NI for its permanent collection. His work has also been recently purchased by the NI Civil Service for its permanent collection.
Within his work, oil paint is united 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, accompanied with harmonious and contrasting imagined elements.
The ArtisAnn Gallery is delighted to host his first solo show. The exhibition runs from Thursday 2 November to Saturday 25 November 2017, with a special preview on Wed 1 November from 6pm - 8pm.
Admission to the exhibition is free. All art is available to buy, and may be collected or delivered after the exhibition ends.
