Ciarán Lennon has been described as ‘one of the most important Irish painters currently working in the field of non-objective art’.* He has described the challenge involved in making ‘a painting with detail, interest and figuration and not allow it to be a geometric or biomorphic illusion’.**
Working with a deliberately limited palette, in ‘1/3/92B’ Lennon pushes himself to discover all the nuances that gesture, surface and pigment can offer, clear in the knowledge that all of these add up to more than the sum of their parts.
*Ciarán Lennon, May 27 – June 27 1992, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Exhibition Guide.
