H. Graham”.

  • Ciarán Lennon studied at NCAD between 1962 and ’67, graduating as an art teacher. He worked as a graphic artist for RTÉ before working as a teacher in both NCAD and at the Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design. He has had numerous solo shows at the David Hendriks Gallery, the Project Arts Centre, the Belfast Arts Council Gallery and more recently at the Fenderesky Gallery in Belfast. In 1993 he represented Ireland at the São Paolo Biennal and three years later he had a joint exhibition with Michael Warren at the Galerie Lahumière in Paris. Intrigued by the concept of perception and sensory awareness, his work explores various physical properties by layering different materials combined with acrylic paint creating what he calls “lenses”. His work is held in many major collections including the Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane, IMMA and the Ulster Museum Belfast.
