Biting Lightning | shane O'Driscoll

9 June - 23 July 2022
This exhibition is a collection of pieces created in the last year, ranging from hand printed works to sculptural pieces. Having limited access to my studio in the past two years has forced me to explore different mediums in my practice and to embrace new thoughts and actions.

On Saturday 25th June at 2pm, Shane O’Driscoll will give a presentation about his work, processes and influences in the artwork created for the Biting Lightning exhibition @ GOMA and other creative projects.
Admission is free and all are welcome

Shane O’Driscoll is a visual artist who practices mainly in printmaking.
The art of balance informs his work. Limited elements ranging from the
geometric to the textured are carefully positioned against a flat back-ground.

Each motif is distinctive in its own right but it also enhances and resonates with those
around, creating an element of tension or frisson across the composition.

Shane studied Visual Communications and is a member of Cork Printmakers and Backwater Artists Group.

He also creates large scale murals in both city and rural settings.

He has exhibited his work internationally and throughout Ireland. Shane has work in
the permanent collection of The National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College Dublin,
Glucksman Museum UCC, UCD, as well as the OPW State Art Collection.
