Hamilton Gallery is pleased to host an exhibition of paintings ‘Omphalos – new works’ by Diarmuid Delargy.

“This exhibition is, in part, a revisitation of one of my earliest prints “Linnegan’s Kitchen” from 1982.

The original depicted a caged sow -they say- being prevented from the disaster of eating her own farrow…the present lockdown caused me to reflect on this piece and I found myself responding….riffing off the original if you like.

Similarly, a recent visit to the Antrim coast, just before lockdown, got me athinking. I realised l hadn’t fully responded to the coastline of my formative years and l was inspired to do so .

For me, the title “Omphalos” references where l came from.”

Diarmuid Delargy was born in Belfast. He studied at the University of Ulster and the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. He has lived and worked in the west of Ireland for many years as a painter, sculptor and printmaker.

Delargy has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally. He is a member of Aosdana, the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, London and the Royal Ulster Academy.

Gallery opening hours: Mon to Sat 10am – 5pm
