9 Stones Artist Anthony Lyttle to exhibit ‘Accumulation’ at Visual during Eigse 2012

work by Anthony LyttleAnthony Lyttle is Eigse’s 2012 selected ’059′ artist  

Anthony Lyttle will create an immersive space within the gallery by making a series of large scale drawings and inter-related smaller works on paper. Central to these drawings is the physical process of making, which involves the endless repetition of the same mark and the ensuing rhythmic energy of repetitive action.

As the drawings evolve, a shadow image forms and assumes a visual influence of the picture plane, resulting in a play of balance between the dominant and the recessive. Obscuring and camouflaging becomes the preoccupation in building a density of marks on the surface of the delicate paper.

Anthony Lyttle was born in Kenya, spending his childhood in Kenya and Ethiopia before moving to Ireland in his teenage years. He studied Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design Dublin and he did his MA in Fine Art Painting at the Byam Shaw, Central St Martins, University of the Arts, London. His recent exhibitions include ‘The white mark’ the Cross Gallery (Dublin) 2011 and ‘Through the Back Door’ Kunstraum (Liechtenstein) 2010. He is currently living in Killedmond in Co Carlow near Mt Leinster. For more info see www.anthonylyttle.com

This exhibition is curated by Denis Roche.
