A rare opportunity for Tate Guerin Gallery at Wells House
monochrome lith prints by
Opens Thursday June 5th at 6.30pm with a wine reception
Guest Speaker: author & journalist Declan Lynch
Landscape and still life photographer Brian McIlvenny (email@example.com) is a leading specialist in an alternative chemical process known as lith printing, Brian uses this classic method to produce personally hand-made lith prints from his darkroom in County Wicklow. The technique uses lithographic chemistry to develop silver gelatin paper, resulting in bold graphic images with delicate warm tones. Variables in this unpredictable process ensure that each individual limited edition lith print is unique. Brian is an advocate of Straight Photography: a tradition of employing precision and clarity with minimal manipulation to reveal “the thing itself”.
The Tate Guerin Gallery at Wells House Ballyedmond is hosting this retrospective which includes some of the finest examples from a definitive collection of his best known images made during the past seventeen years.
In 2010 Brian was laureate of the Prix Cafefoto at Les Rencontres
d'Arles and consequently exhibitied in Paris as part of the official Mois de la Photo. Numerous solo shows, group exhibitions and art fairs in Dublin, London and Paris have led to international sales to corporate and individual collectors. These in Ireland have included Microsoft, Securitas and The Brooklodge Hotel.
This exhibition offers an opportunity to invest in an original as Brian's lith prints are not available for purchase on-line. For further information on this exhibition contact Paula firstname.lastname@example.org ph: 0877521677
A series of fine art ink editions are also available from
The Copper House Gallery in Dublin
