The international art fair, COLLECT, concluded today at Saatchi Gallery, London. Irish makers were once again represented by a number of galleries and these included Liam Flynn, by Sarah Myerscough Gallery; Cóilín Ó Dubhghaill, by Contemporary Applied Arts and Kevin Callaghan, by Bicha Gallery. I was especially interested to see the work of Edmond Byrne at Flow Gallery. Byrne’s mark marking is arrived at by grinding back raised surface areas of the glass to create a wonderfully nuanced textured surface. His work at this years COLLECT was part of a recent series, which explores emotional state – in all its complexities.
