Daphne Wright

Daphne Wright b.1963

Daphne Wright attended Sligo RTC College, the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne Polytechnic. Wright makes multi-narrative installations, using a range of fragile media including plaster, tinfoil, unfired clay, and sound and video. She considers how language and materials can be used to probe unspoken human preoccupations. Concerned with the transitory areas of life, she explores the cusp of childhood and adulthood, and the borderlines between life and death.

Lucian Freud

Lucian Freud 1922–2011

Lucian Freud (1922-2011) was one of the greatest realist painters of the 20th century. Renowned for his portrayal of the human form, Freud is best known for his intimate, honest, often visceral portraits. Working only from life Freud’s studio was intensely private and he mainly worked with those he was close to, often asking subjects to sit for hundreds of hours over multiple sittings to better capture the essence of their personality.
