'Dublinski' is the nickname some Russian friends gave to the fair city of Dublin. It has since stayed with me and has in part inspired this painting, made in 2007. This was at the peak of the property boom in Ireland, when cranes dominated the skyline and shiny new glass and mirrored structures were shooting up alongside the grand old Georgian buildings. This is the first painting upon which 'found objects' were added, creating texture and points of interest. These include a lipstick mirror, so that the viewer becomes a part of the piece, the underwires of a bra, because the city is so close to my heart. The rest I will let the viewer discover. The many intricate lines and layers and 'computer language' express the complexity and inter-dependency of urban life.
