Northern Irish painter Ronnie Hughes studied art at the University of Ulster, Belfast. While social and cultural issues were central concerns in his early work, more recently Hughes has moved towards an avoidance of the literal or directly referential in his paintings. Hughes has had many solo exhibitions in Ireland since 1989. He has completed residencies in New York, Nebraska and Canada, and has been involved in a number of international group shows.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, in line with current government restrictions, IMMA’s galleries will close from 24 December until further notice. All tickets purchased for Paula Rego, Obedience and Defiance exhibition will be refunded over the next two weeks. We appreciate your patience during this time.
