Other Worlds: Harry Clarke Watercolours

Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place

Wed 14 Dec 2022 - Sun 19 Mar 2023
10am
FREE


For a limited time only, Crawford Art Gallery’s annual exhibition of Harry Clarke’s watercolours and ink drawings returns!

OTHER WORLDS explores Clarke’s extraordinary capacity for conjuring images from literature and bringing often romantic or macabre worlds into being. From his illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination to his blue-tinged watercolour studies for The Eve of St Agnes, Clarke transformed these source texts through his vivid imagination and unique aesthetic.

At a time when we are tentatively poised on the cusp of the ‘metaverse’ – an immersive virtual world – this exhibition draws together the work of several other artists to consider how visual art participates in world-building.

OTHER WORLDS features the work of Pauline Bewick, Stephen Brandes, Harry Clarke, Salvador Dalí, Jan de Fouw, Stanley William Hayter, Brianna Hurley, William Otway McCannell, Haoer Schilling, and Noreen Spillane.
