Artwork description

The Late Albert Irvin OBE RA continued to work with incredible energy up until his death at the age of 92 in March 2015. This energy is captured in his vibrantly-coloured abstract work. The urban location of Irvin's ex-schoolroom studio and the city environment in which he lived and worked fuelled his paintings and prints which are often named after local streets or areas.

Irvin made screenprints for many years at Advanced Graphics London, a printmaking studio and gallery in Borough, which exclusively uses oil-based inks thus achieving an incredible vibrancy of colour and heavy, layered surfaces. O'Connell was named after O'Connell street in Dublin and related to Irvin's exhibition at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin in 1995. It is particularly complex in composition and mark-making for Irvin, the architectural structure perhaps suggesting Irish doors and windows. Whether the marks and motifs are interpreted as trails left by planes or seagulls, the overriding sensation is one of passion and spontenaeity. A partner print was made and titled Merrion.
