The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exclusive show by Jack Hickey.  A show that is both intimate and exclusive.  The show is entitled ‘Depart’.  Jack opens the show with a special ‘Meet and Greet’, to answer any questions you may wish to ask the Artist himself. The show will take place Saturday October 15th, from 2-4pm, at No. 24 South Frederick St, and is scheduled to run from October 15th to October 29th.
 
Jack Hickey took leave from Ireland to take up residency in Bordeaux.  In the months before his return to Ireland, his habitat had been in Cork City.  It was during his time in Cork, that his new series of work ‘Depart’, was conceived.  The incidental moments he captured in the lead up to his departure form a poignant narrative, with each painting having personal and considered significance. The ‘Depart’ series, follows his previous works in a loosely autobiographical thread.
 
Take this opportunity to meet Jack and view his modest collection of photo realistic pieces of mastery.
 
We really hope that you can attend the show!

 

Sunday Times "CULTURE" 2012 -  Cristín Leach Hughes

"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 "CULTURE" 2011 -  Cristín Leach Hughes

"New graduate shows raise the question of whether art should be led by ideas or skills...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."

Irish Examiner  2011 - Marc O'Sullivan

"...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 Times - Aidan Dunne

"Jack Hickey's fragmentary views of figures in interiors are well judged."
