The Nocturnes


Jack Hickey

Featured artist for Culture night

Friday 19th 6 - 10pm

Culture Night comprises of hundreds of events across Ireland and overseas. From the Nation’s capital to county town's, everyone’s getting involved! Arts and cultural organisations open their doors until late with hundreds of free events, tours, talks & performances for you, your family and friends to enjoy.
The Doorway Gallery is open from 6-10pm and will have Jack Hickey's solo show on display.

"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day"
                               Vincent Van Gogh
Dealing with Ireland’s social nightlife, Jack Hickey’s most recent collection, illustrates the beautiful, the ridiculous, and the menacing of the clouded contemporary cityscape. The work explores the shaded underclass of the nocturnal urban terrain and pursues the disenfranchised as they search their city for meaning once darkness falls.
This will be Jack Hickey’s third solo show and his first solo exhibition in Dublin.

DJ Ruaidhri will be playing tunes on the night!

"There are no faces, and there's a certain film noir feel to this work.
It's about the possible significance of those private silences and in-between moments that punctuate our lives."
    Sunday Times

"New graduate shows raise the question of whether art should be led by ideas or skills, Cristín Leach...
...Jack Hickey, at the Crawford College of Art and Design (CCAD) in Cork, combined skill with concept in a series of intensely atmospheric realist paintings of near-empty rooms with glimpses of their half-dressed occupants."
  Sunday Times

"...Jack Hickey displays a level of technical ability beyond that of many recent graduates.
Hickey, in particular, is the real deal, an artist with a clear vision and the ability to realise it in paint.
His canvasses - of glimpsed figures in otherwise empty rooms - are some of the best in recent graduate exhibitions.
  Irish Examiner


"Jack Hickey's fragmentary views of figures in interiors are well judged." Irish Times, Aidan Dunne
