One (detail) – Patrick Ireland
Brian O’Doherty emerged in the 1960s as one of the most multifaceted figures in the New York art scene. Born in Ireland in 1928 and trained as a physician, O’Doherty moved in 1961 to New York, where he soon garnered attention in the burgeoning conceptual art scene as both an artist and a critic. In his work, he investigates limits of perception, language, serial systems, and identity, seeking to engage viewers’ minds as well as their senses. O’Doherty has also invented a number of personas—most notably Patrick Ireland, the artistic alias he adopted in protest against the Bloody Sunday massacre in Derry in 1972 and has used ever since . . .

Joseph Barbaccia is an artist whose practice covers a variety of disciplines: sculpture, printmaking and encaustic, among others. Barbaccia’s sequinned polystyrene sculptures are extremely captivating through the bold use of abstract form, variegated colour and pure old-fashioned sparkle. Euphoria’s feathery sequins are particularly effective in implying movement and joy. The calming colours of Qualm distract from the claw-like nature of the piece, and Savor is what it is: a piece of popcorn.
