Drawing Project in association with The Department of Classics, Trinity College Dublin

Tagged: , , ,

I am currently in Greece completing reseach for a drawing project for which I received the Thomas Dammann Junior Memorial Trust Award 2015. The drawings will be the principal visual element to an important academic thesis initially, and later a book and an exhibition, the project provides an invaluable opportunity to link up with the Classics Department at Trinity College Dublin where I originally studied Classical Civilisation and Philosophy. It is an opportunity for me as a practicing professional artist to collaborate in a practical way with a valuable academic endeavour by incorporating an important artistic visual dimension. The resulting drawings and paintings will greatly enhance the explanatory power of the thesis and contribute to this previously undocumented part of our cultural, economic and political heritage.
