Conor Harrington 'Headless Heroes'

Lazarides is proud to present 'Headless Heroes' by Conor Harrington. Conor's last solo show in 2008 was a bold and beautiful visual feast and 'Headless Heroes' promises much more.

Continuing his exploration into masculinity and power, Conor's new paintings and drawings combine historical re-enactment, F1 pit-stops, text and glamour models. Conor's aim is to have the visual aesthetic of his paintings reflect the visual culture we live in.

Since he was a teenager painting on the streets of Cork, Conor has always tread a fine line between 'street art' and 'fine art', never aligning himself with a particular movement or aesthetic but instead pushing forward with his own unique representations of the world around him, creating works that are striking yet accessible.

30th October 2009 - 26th November 2009
The show is open Monday-Friday 11-7pm and Saturday 12-5pm.
