In October 2013, members of Illustrators Ireland followed up the huge success of their 2012 group exhibition The Illustrated Beatles with a new highly anticipated show... The Art of Superstition. Launched at the prestigious Copper House Gallery in Dublin, this 42 piece exhibition examined the world of irrational beliefs through the medium of illustration. Once again the collection showed a range of artistic approaches including watercolour, pen and ink, acrylic, oils, pencil and digital work all expertly reproduced and presented as framed fine art prints.
Opening night at the Gallery exceeded all expectations with numbers reaching a record for an exhibition launch and cementing for the second time in two years the reputation of the collective and the quality of illustration currently being produced in Ireland. Unsuprisingly media coverage was extensive and exhibition previews and reviews were unanimous in praising the standard of the show.
Although Irish based, Illustrators Ireland also has several members from around the world all working in Ireland. This was reflected throughout the work giving the show the benefit of a truely international flavour .
Superstition can be defined as:
1. An irrational belief that an object, action, or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome.
a. A belief, practice, or rite irrationally maintained by ignorance of the laws of nature or by faith
in magic or chance.
b. A fearful or abject state of mind resulting from such ignorance or irrationality.
We are delighted to offer a selection of the best works, available as individual prints or as a bespoke portfolio of 12 prints in a handmade presentation case with a tipped in cover print of the image of your choice.
In recent years members of Illustrators Ireland have been recognised in international award ceremonies and competitions such as 3X3 magazine, American Illustration, Association of Illustrators (UK) and the Society of Illustrators (NY).
