  • Literature: 'Living with Art:David Hendriks'', edited by Gordon Lambert (1985), full page illustration p.46.
  • The Witch of Mullaghderg was painted in 1975 and formed part of the Westerness Series in which Colin Middleton revisited many of the ideas and themes that had dominated earlier periods of his work. After the very international vision of the Wilderness Series that preceded it, inspired by Middleton's travels to Spain, Australia and South America, the Westerness paintings found their inspiration in Irish literature, landscape, myth and legend.Within these works Middleton integrated certain elements of the surrealist playfulness of the Wilderness paintings, their combination of creating drama within a shallow area while suggesting a vast empty space behind, and the carefully prepared boards on which he had begun to paint. The conception of the work appears to be quite different, however; the title of the Westerness series is drawn from Finnegan's Wake and throughout the relatively small cycle of paintings, Middleton returns to the female archetype to explore ideas around the duality of human nature, the difficulty of rationalising the co-existence of the material and spiritual within our lives, as well as our own relationship to the landscape we live in, both its physical terrain and its power in myth and memory.In the present painting, the highly abstracted figure of the witch dominates the painting entirely, the highly abstracted folded material of her long train reaches across the picture space as she appears to hover, barely touching the ground, offering a playing card towards the viewer. Although The Witch of Mullaghderg does refer to a specific place, it has less sense of the landscape or the natural world than some of the other Westerness works and its ambiguity and playfulness recalls Middleton's earlier surrealist paintings. Dickon Hall, Belfast, November 2014.Dickon Hall is a Belfast based art dealer and writer. Since completing an MA at the Courtauld Institute of Art he has curated numerous exhibitions in London, Belfast and Dublin. He has published monographs on Colin Middleton and Nevill Johnson and has written extensively on twentieth century and contemporary art.

  • Arthur Armstrong (1924–1996) was a painter from County Antrim, who often worked in a Cubist style and produced landscape and still life works. Armstrong was born in Carrickfergus on 12 January 1924. He was the son of a house painter and attended Strandtown Primary School. Later he studied architecture at Queen's University Belfast, but after two years he moved to study art at Belfast College of Art. The influence of Cubism and the School of Paris can be clearly seen in his work, which took him to England, France and Spain. He also travelled and painted in the West of Ireland with fellow artists and close friends Gerard Dillon and George Campbell. Connemara inspired some of his best work. In 1950 his work was exhibited in the Grafton Gallery in Dublin, and subsequent exhibitions took place in England, Spain and the United States, as well as in Belfast and Dublin. In 1957 he was awarded a travelling scholarship from the Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts (a forerunner of the Arts Council of Great Britain) and went to Spain. He eventually settled in Dublin in 1962 and began showing work at the Royal Hibernian Academy.In 1968 he was awarded the Douglas Hyde Gold Medal at the Oireachtas Exhibition. In 1969 he designed sets (with George Campbell and Gerard Dillon) for the Seán O'Casey play, Juno and the Paycock, at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. He became a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1972 and in 1973 he was awarded the Art in Context prize from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. He became a member of Aosdána in 1981, the same year that a retrospective exhibition of his work from 1950 to 1980 was held by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

The design of the piece consists of three silver rings representing the castle of Dublin which has been the symbol of the city since the Middle Ages, and which is depicted on Coat of Arms of Dublin.From the centre-inner circle, flames represented by yellow stoneware are seen to be leaping from the towers of the castle: this is symbolic of the readiness of the citizens to defend the city, again as depicted on the Coat of Arms of Dublin. The three rings are mounted on a textured glazed stoneware base in varying shades of blue, representing Dublin Bay and the River Liffey on the banks of which the city was founded. The yellow streaks through the base represent the ever changing sands of time.The piece is presented on a marble pillar with sculpted designs including motifs for the Dublin Millennium and The Papal Visit.An extremely important and unique example of 20th Century Irish silversmithing of incomparable value.

  • Born in Kilkenny, Carmel Mooney studied at the National College of Art & Design and later University College Dublin where she holds a Diploma in the History of European Painting.Carmel Mooneyhad her first solo exhibition at the Lincoln Gallery, Dublin, in 1983. A lecturer in the History of Painting, she was also Artistic Director at Daon Scoil, An Daingean, from 1981 to 1991.In 1989 she spent time at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig, Co Monaghan, concentrating on strengthening the structure of her painterly work, in particular the role of line. A year later a visit to Lanzarote introduced her to its volcanic landscape, and she subsequently returned many times to work there. These two events proved a significant turning point in the development of her work and heralded the introduction of her volcanic series of paintings, first shown at an exhibition in Dublin in 1993. A fascination with volcanoes has also taken her regularly to the still active Mount Etna in Sicily. She is a member of l'Association Volcanologique Européenne. The present work is an example of her much admired Volcanic Series.

  • Provenance: Purchased from artist through Derek Hill, 1967; Private collection
  • The Irish artist and primitive landscape painter James Dixon was born on Tory Island, County Donegal, and aside from the occasional visit to the mainland, remained on the island all his life. He devoted himself to fishing and small farming. He only started painting at the age of 72, after seeing a painter - Derek Hill - at work on a landscape painting. Hill encouraged Dixon and provided him with oils and other art materials, although Dixon made his own paintbrushes from donkey's hair. In due course it was Hill who introduced Dixon's artworks to the art world, thus helping Dixon to become an important figure in the history of twentieth-century Irish painting. His painting is seen as an excellent example of Outsider Art, and was the subject of a major exhibition at The Irish Museum of Modern Art - Two Painters: Alfred Wallis and James Dixon, IMMA, Dublin, September - November 1999.

  • Michael Canning was born in Limerick in 1971. After studying at the Limerick School of Art and Design he studied in Greece at the School of Fine Arts in Athens 1992 to 1993, and in 1999 he received his Masters Degree in Fine Art from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin.Michael Canning’s paintings of hedgerow plants confront certain traditions of northern European painting. Neither landscapes, nor still lifes, they convey an atmospheric quality laden with spiritual undertones. Heavy mists shroud the rolling hills of the Irish landscape which part only for the wild plants. The plants are rendered directly from observation. Each paintings is built up in layers, using oil paint and wax. They sometimes include the very substance which the painting depicts; ground earth and ash. Michael finds the plants on daily walks near his home in County Limerick. The names of the plants are not important to him, many are known simply by their local names, some of which are known to be poisons or remedies. The idea that these plants may have healing or adverse properties interests Michael, but it is the not knowing which offers which, that lends the paintings their air of mystery and suspense.Michael has exhibited extensively throughout Ireland and The UK. Including group events with Jonathan Swift Gallery, Highlanes Gallery Drogheda, Eigse International Arts Festival,Carlow, Boyle Arts Festival, Mermaid Arts Centre, Crawford Municipal Gallery, Limerick City Gallery, Galway Arts Centre and several RHA Annual exhibitions. His work is included in many private and public collections including: AIB, McCann Erickson, AXA, Butler Gallery, University of Limerick and OPW Ireland. He won the Hennessy Craig Scholarship and Whyte's Prize in 2003 and the Fergus O'Ryan Memorial Award in 2006, all at the RHA, Dublin.
