The Abstracted City’

October 4th - November 1st


In his first solo show in Ireland, Hugh Frazer exhibits his depictions of the urban landscape which derive from his explorations of Dublin, Belfast and Brussels. Journeying through each city, Frazer’s own emotional response to the landscape became a point of inspiration, highlighting the loneliness, alienation, longing and foreboding that can arise from existing in a transient city. However his use of dramatic light and shadow, fine tuned engagement with abstract pattern and careful choice of colour allow for an infusion of personality. He works from what are often unusual perspectives – for instance, several of the paintings originate from time spent exploring the city from the upper levels of multi-story car parks.   The works possess an intrigue through this vulnerable and idiosyncratic response, where creativity and character can flourish from this emotive exploration of responding to his surroundings.

"Hugh Frazer has a feeling for abstract patterns in his crisply organised, carefully lit urban landscapes." 
Aidan Dunne, Irish Times
Hugh Frazer has exhibited frequently in major exhibitions in Ireland: including the Royal Ulster Academy (1985), the Royal Hibernian Academy (1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2007, 2012), Oireachtas Exhibition (1996), Iontas National Small Works Exhibition (1994, 1995, 1998), CEER NCAD (1989-2001 – winner of painting prize 1997 and 2001).  From 2001 to 2006 he lived and worked in Belgium where he held two solo exhibitions (in the Chapitre XII Gallery in Brussels in 2007 and in the headquarters of the European Commission’s Directorate for Education and Culture in 2009).
