The Foggy Dew
Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin
January 15th – February 21st, 2016
Mick O’Dea PRHA will present an installation of sculpture and paintings at the RHA in an exhibition that opens on January 15th. O’Dea is known for his paintings that relate to Irish History as well as his use of images culled from found and researched photographs. The Foggy Dew follows on from O’ Dea’s trilogy of exhibitions that were held at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery; Black and Tan in 2010, Trouble in 2012 and The Split in 2014 covering the periods 1919 to 1923 in Ireland. The Foggy Dew represents an increasingly subjective take on the events surrounding the Rising.The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Trinity College historian Ciaran O’Neill, co-published with Ballina Arts Centre and Mayo County County Council. A version of the exhibition will be shown in Ballinglen Art Foundation, Ballycastle and Ballina Arts Centre in late July and August 2016.
