‘Pause for Harmony. Art in Lockdown’ by Gerard Byrne
''The exhibition and online tour are a chance to virtually visit Dublin, take a stroll through its streets and reconnect.''
The 360 degree virtual tour takes you inside the gallery where you can view over 40 artworks on display at your own pace, from the comfort of your own home. The tour is innovative and engaging allowing viewers to see each painting in detail while enjoying interactive features that enhance the tour and user's experience. The exhibition forms a visual diary of Dublin city in lockdown, capturing the quiet and tranquil streets of what is normally a very busy city.
The exhibition appeals to both Dublin locals as well as those living abroad who are currently unable to travel to Ireland, whether they are of Irish descent, or if they simply have a love for the country. Anyone can appreciate the feelings of nostalgia and love for Dublin that have inspired the collection. Gerard's paintings pay homage to Dublin's iconic red brick architecture, and to the early summer foliage.
