From Alexa in White Lady Art:
Opening Thursday 17th January, 6pm - 10pm
14 Wellington Quay
White Lady Art invites you to "Fractured, America: an exhibition of work by Dublin artist, Hawkie". These pieces of work by Hawkie are the result of time spent and enjoyed traveling across America. Fleeting impressions of characters met or seen, experiences and life in another place.
"These drawings were made in November/December 2011 during a road trip in California, USA. Just before returning to Ireland I broke my neck while surfing in Venice Beach. Despite my injury (and strong medication) I continued to draw and sketch characters and scenes from Venice and beyond. Since my first 'J1' summer in 1996 I've traveled across, worked, played and got lost in the USA. What I've learned is that each city block, bus trip or random encounter will give me something for the sketchbook, probably more than anywhere else I've ever been.
Many of these drawings were created by doing quick sketches right there and then, however some were retrospective...some make sense, some never will. Enjoy. Hawkie".
Hawkie will be doing some live drawing on the night, and we will have a great live set from acoustic songwriter, Malojian, who will be releasing his new album "The Deer's Cry" on February 4th 2013.
BYOB with some drinks for free on the night for early types, as usual!!
