The London Irish Centre present new works by acclaimed Dublin born artist, Pete Dunne.
Moving away from conceptualisation and abstraction, Pete Dunne wanted to present the immigrants ideal view of Ireland in a realistic snapshot of the landscape.
This series of paintings, enabled the artist to return to his Irish roots, and reconnect with the West. He set out to explore the 'rose tinted' view that allows us, the immigrant, to divorce ourselves from the reality of everyday life, in the Ireland we left behind. The immigrants identity is forged between two places. To always have a foot in each camp, is the lot of the London Irish.
