Enniskillen: Recent Work of David Rankin

Catcover Rankin


An exhibition of recent work by David Rankin which confronts Ireland's 1982 Remembrance Day attacks.


The Enniskillen paintings and murals integrate photographic news images from the 1987 bombings on to black paper with paint. The brushstrokes emulate ash, dust and ruin making the images appear to be shroud in a cloud of dust. Rankin grapples not only with the chaos of the shattered buildings and the scatter of human victims, but with his own Irish heritage. Rankin’s father, who is from Enniskillen, lost two family members during the bombing. In this moving series of works, Rankin attempts to reconcile his history and heritage.

Cost: $29.00
