The Molesworth Gallery

Shane Berkery

Lunch in the meadow ~ oil on canvas ~ 60 x 90 cm (Private collection)


__ For his debut solo exhibition at The Molesworth Gallery, Shane Berkery distilled an array of imagery into his work, ranging from an archive of family photographs, documenting his Japanese-Irish heritage, to the stream of posts assailing him via social media feeds. Visual references are sampled, spliced and refracted through the prism of his very distinctive palette of Vandyke brown, white, ultramarine, cadmium yellow and permanent rose.
__ A first-class honours graduate in fine art from NCAD in 2015, Berkery was awarded the Hennessy Craig Scholarship and Whyte’s Award at the RHA Annual Exhibition in 2016, and the NUI Art and Design Award in 2015.
