The Exile's Return

28 March - 14 April 2012

An exhibition of paintings and prints by Kevin McSherry.

 

The Exile's Return deals with Kevin's recurrent theme of cultural disconnection. He relates his narrative-laden paintings, sometimes with humour, other times more darkly, but all his works play with the viewers imagination and wit, stretching both, with his intentionally absurd compositions.
