Anthony D Kelly

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung. Through his studies and work in the area of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy Anthony D Kelly draws upon a deep knowledge of the origins, functions and potentials of the cognitive, emotional, and somatic states which surface in the body and mind. Utilizing the medium of Digital Collage he clarifies and gives solid form to these abstract, elusive and transient states which continually emerge to temporarily occupy our inner spaces. These crystalized images of inner states offer the viewer a chance to recognise these unconscious movements within themselves and others.

Anthony D Kelly is an Illustrator, Writer, Visual Artist and Integrative Psychotherapist. He is currently based in Castlebar, County Mayo located on Irelands West Coast. He has extensive experience as a Gallery Administrator, Curator and Project Facilitator from his time at Basement Project Space an artist led initiative which was part of the cultural fabric of Cork City, Ireland. The aim of this initiative was to generate an exhibition/project space independent of established institutions, to provide development opportunities for emerging artists and to encourage cutting edge experimental practice across a broad range of disciplines.

He has studied Arts Administration, Arts Participation and Global Development and Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy. Anthony is greatly interested in the Arts as an effective method for engagement with Social, Political and Global Development issues; and for seeking beyond the known to formulate the new. He works mainly with Illustration, Collage and Assemblage techniques to create hopeful, humorous, and sometimes unnerving and deeply satirical imagery.


Hina Khan
Miniaturist / Visual Artist

Human perception can present things very sensitively and for me Art is not just an activity, it is a passion. It is a medium that I used as an activist. I use it to describe my feelings, my pain.

I have chosen Miniature because of its intricacy and delicacy of brush work which tends their unique identity. Most of my work is a mixture of traditional and contemporary miniature. I always attracted by the graceful lines, rhythm and depth of colors in a miniature. My work is the constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas expresses my own ideologies through symbolism.

Born in Pakistan in 1980, I completed my MFA with majors in Miniature Painting from Pakistan. I am using a mixture of traditional and innovative techniques in Miniatures. I portray social issues, immigration, humanitarian crises like prostitution, gender discrimination, gender restrictions, trauma, child abuse & killing etc in my work. I have chosen Miniature because of its intricacy and delicacy of brush work which tends their unique identity. Most of my work is a mixture of traditional and contemporary miniature. My work is the constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas expresses my own ideologies through symbolism. Shifting my practice to installation, videos, 3D.

I am creating a dialogue through my art. My art is reflection of inner connection, immigrants, nomadic artists are part of this land, migration is deeply rooted in my blood. I have carried two cultures one where I was born and other is this culture where i am trying to re-root myself. Sometimes situation is not in our control, but life always takes us to different voyage. This journey built up constant transition in my art., personality, experimentation, allows me to evolve my art practice.

I have participated in number of groups shows in Pakistan from 2002 to 2011.

I came to Ireland in 2015 and participated in number of exhibitions in Dublin, Co. Laois, Co. Mayo, and Co. Cork. I have been rewarded several residencies with Fire Station Arts Center, Create Ireland, West Cork Art

Center and Cow House Studio. I have displayed my solo exhibition at Ballina Art Center, Mayo, and Stradbally Art house. My next solo exhibition is in pipeline in the coming months.

My art pieces are also in the permanent collection of Arts Council Ireland.

I am the recipient of several Awards from Arts Council Ireland, Create Ireland, and different counties.

Currently I am preparing solo show will be displayed in LHQ Gallery in 2022.


Opening hours:
Monday – Friday (10am – 5pm).
Saturday/Sunday/ Bank Holiday (1pm – 4.30pm).
