Emma Lucy O’Brien : Red Earth

Reflecting on events, memories and the traces of evidence left to us from times past, O’Donoghue uses his family history to connect with and understand the wars that have shaped our histories; and reflects on the personal experiences of his grandfather Hugh O’Donoghue in the First World War and his father, Daniel O’Donoghue, during the Second World War. From his richly painted surfaces emerge fragments from the archive of his past, entwined with the disturbing resonance of war.
