The Rising Spire (Dublin City Centre)

Painting: 20" x 40"

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

18th of February 2013

I was attracted by the elegant simplicity and magnitude of the SPIRE and it’s position in the centre of our city, alongside the G.P.O…. the location of the 1916 Easter Rising and the consequent re-birth of our Nationhood.

Together, they depict our journey as we continue to reach for greater heights.

The painting is meant to emphasise the “Heights” of these achievements and our links with the past….

It epitomizes the present generation and the imprint they will leave on our Capital City which is central to our future.
