Dealing with fear and conflict is no easy proposition. Yet considering everyone invariably faces anxiety at some time, coming to terms with adversity is an important step on the path to acceptance. For Brian Flynn, experiencing the violence in Northern Ireland during the height of The Troubles, it’s been a long road to confronting the harsh realities of the human condition. The outcome is a series of new paintings giving voice and form, both to personal experience of civil war and the result of meticulous research, including interviews with former members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA).
Join artist Brian Flynn for a discussion of his latest exhibition, No Photos… No Recordings… No Notes…Brian Flynn: Repainting The Troubles, curated by Dick Averns and currently on view at Nickle Galleries (January 17 – April 9, 2022).
