"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.

Jack Hickey was born in 1988 in the small town of Cobh. He studied Fine Art at the Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork and graduated in 2011. His work attempts to illuminate the emptiness at the centre of human relationships, the inherent lack of meaningful interaction between different people, different sexes and different realities. The open space in the work represents the distance between individuals, the unsaid and the unrequited.
