  • David Ireland, Green Rectangle over Skellig, 1994

  • David Ireland, Blood Dots and Rain over Ireland, 1994

David Ireland’s (United States, born 1930) works have never fit comfortably within any traditional category of art. He has been categorized as a sculptor, an architect, an installation artist, a performance artist and, quite recently, as a photographer. Ireland’s painted photographs from a series made on the island of Skellig, located off the southern coast of Ireland, reflect his ability to uncover the psychological spirit of place.
