The Presentation Centre Presents
An Exhibition of Work by Lar Joyce
24th February – 10th April 2017
In conjunction with the Wexford Arts Centre
The Presentation Centre Enniscorthy is proud to host an exhibition of work by Irish artist Lar Joyce.
Lar Joyce is a self taught artist who lives & works in Co. Wexford.
Lar has always had an interest in visual art and has been drawing and painting at a professional level for the past five years.
During this time he has begun exhibiting and selling both originals and prints of his art work in many galleries such as Denis Collins Gallery, the Gas Lamp Gallery & the Sweet Shop Gallery.
Throughout his professional career Lar has created a large variety of work ranging from traditional style animal portraits to more contemporary style seascapes in recent times, favouring charcoal drawings and oil paintings.
The strength of his technique and the apparent role of experimentation allow each new work to be fresh and distinct from the work that has come before.
The juxtaposition of traditional style drawing and contemporary backgrounds combines for a fresh outlook on traditional subject matter and creates a method for the production of once off pieces.
Lar has exhibited at the Presentation Centre in the past as part The Enniscorthy Showcase Exhibition in 2013, presented by the Denis Collins Art Gallery. The exhibition aimed to highlight the range of talented artists resident in Enniscorthy.
Amongst other exhibitions, Lar has had continued success at the Wexford Opera festival in 2014, 2015 & 2016. He has exhibited in the RDS Horse Show 2016 and ‘House’ in the RDS, 2016.
Limited edition prints of Lar’s work are available in a number of retail outlets around the south east including the Dennis Collins Gallery & the Gas Lamp Gallery.
Lar’s creative process has recently extended to picture framing which he also hopes to promote in the future along with his work in the Listowel Conference Centre, the Kilkenny Arts festival, and the Wexford Opera festival in 2017.
