Patrick Graham: Thirty Years “The Silence Becomes the Painting”
Curated by Peter Selz
Supported in part by Culture Ireland
In a rare opportunity to view the works of Ireland’s most influential contemporary artist, Meridian Gallery will display over 35 works by the artist Patrick Graham, including paintings, collages, and drawings. This exhibition contains four of his monumental iconic diptychs. Two of these pieces, Wreath and Somewhere Jerusalem, evoke the sense of ceremony, ritual, and a longing for space and homeland. Organized by Meridian Gallery, the exhibition will tour under the gallery’s auspices to; Katzen Museum of Art at American University, the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art at Saint Louis University, and University of Syracuse Museum of Art. Graham’s work has also been the subject of exhibitions and symposiums internationally, including the National Gallery of Ireland, the Berkeley Art Museum, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Trinity College, Walker Art Gallery in England, the Hokkaido Museum in Japan, the University of Michigan, Northeastern University, and Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Works are selected from Jack Rutberg Fine Arts (LA), Graham’s international agent.
