Peppercanister Gallery will present an ensemble of the very best Irish and International artists at this year’s VUE Contemporary Art Fair at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Ely Place, Dublin 2 from 3 – 6 November 2016.
Amongst the many illustrious artists on show is Dublin born Michael Craig-Martin CBE RA. Over the past forty-two years Craig-Martin has exhibited in many of the world’s most prestigious galleries and museums, and he is acknowledged as having been an influential teacher at Goldsmiths College, London.
His many well known former pupils includes Damien Hirst, whose powerful work The Souls On Jacob’s Ladder Take Their Flight will also be available for sale at the Fair. A beautiful pink butterfly on a black field, this iconic image takes its inspiration from the writings of Hans Christian Andersen, as well as the artist’s recurrent central theme – his obsession with life’s impermanence.
Other notable International artists on view include the renowned American artist Julian Schnabel, Scottish sculptor David Mach RA, as well as the late Albert Irvin OBE RA (1922-2015), remembered for his love of life and wonderfully exuberant paintings, and represented by Salcot, a very special work from 1988.
As ever the Peppercanister presents an exciting selection of Ireland’s leading artists with exceptional new works from Liam Belton, Graham Gingles, Ciarán Lennon, Deirdre McLoughlin, Neil Shawcross and Andrew Vickery also included.
