Féile an Phobail 2016, St Mary's University College, Belfast.

 

I referenced iconic black and white photographic images from the Easter Rising and recreated them in paint. The title 'In This Supreme Hour' comes from the last line in the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. 

 

Shortly after Féile, the exhibition moved into the Rotunda in Belfast City Hall for one evening - the first time an Irish Republican-themed exhibition occupied the famous Rotunda Hall. Finally, in December 2016, Fáilte restaurant on Belfast's Falls Road hosted some of the paintings over the Christmas period.
