  • The exhibition catalogue for 'Robert Ballagh, Works from the Studio 1959-2006' notes, "Here, Ballagh parodies the increasingly commonplace notion of art as a purely 'alternative' investment. He carries the idea to its bizarrely logical conclusion, with the portrayal of an exhibition simply of gilt-framed safes displayed on the wall, and miniature safes on centre pedestals. The deadpan absurdist humour here is worthy of the novels of Flann O'Brien." We are grateful to the Gorry Gallery for their kind permission to reproduce this note.

Director of the Fenton Gallery in Cork for ten years, he built lasting ties with the arts community buying regularly from galleries throughout Ireland as well as from artists directly. His strong connections with Cork in particular are reflected in both his subject choice and his support for its native artists, among them, Maurice Desmond. He was an early supporter and friend of Tony O'Malley and the late William Crozier and their paintings within his collection are testament to his access to the very best from their respective oeuvres. All the masters in Irish art from the eighties and nineties are well represented in his collection, although some, for example those by Evie Hone and Gerard Dillon, come from an earlier generation.
