Looking Back. Thinking Black. New Paintings by Ciarán Harper – 6 to 30 Oct

Part of Black History Month 2021

An exhibition looking at historical and influential figures across the Black Atlantic, runs at the ArtisAnn Gallery at 70 Bloomfield Avenue, Belfast from Wednesday 6th October to Saturday 30th October 2021.

Ciarán’s most recent work is inspired by diaspora and how this can be translated in art.

He has received a number of notable commissions, including for the African and Caribbean Support Organisation Northern Ireland (ACSONI) commemoration of the slave trade. His work is included in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s permanent collection.

Ciarán is a Fine Art graduate of Ulster University of Belfast, specialising in painting. Within his practice, oil paint is used on canvas with raw mediums such as wax or plaster, adding dynamism and depth to the work. Collage and found imagery are both an integral part of his practice.

Online and In the Gallery. All Welcome and No Booking Necessary. Admission is free.
