Art at The Ivy House is delighted to present Dublin Perspective – the first Dublin solo exhibition by Belfast photographic artist – Kevin Hamilton.
Kevin’s photographic artworks create a different way of looking at what we see everyday around us in our built environment. He explores the detail and expands it into a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern. He wants to encourage people to have a different and positive view of our environment For the new body of work developed for this solo exhibition he has studied in minute detail landmark buildings of Dublin such as Custom House, Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College – photographically mapping the form and surface of traditional and modern landmarks. Then focusing on small elements and details he has cut and joined the image together creating a symmetrical kaleidoscopic view, to realise the beauty in the built environment around us – making the familiar unfamiliar and giving a new appreciation of its beauty.
