CONCRETE ISLAND: Tales from the Urban Landscape An exhibition by Patrick Coughlan

OFFICIAL SHOW OPENING FRIDAY 21st JUNE 6 – 9pm

CONCRETE ISLAND explores our relationship with the city, looking at the spaces we build and inhabit, and at the graphic language we use to define, and navigate the built environment.”

Patrick is a visual artist, whose practice is broadly concerned with landscape, employing both analogue and digital technologies in his work. Interested in the way in which humans shape and affect the environment, Patrick’s work examines the man-altered landscape. Informed by his experience as a printmaker, signage, text and graphic motifs often feature strongly within his images, utilising the language that we employ to mark and navigate the built environment.

Informed by his previous experience as a print maker, signage, text and graphic motifs often feature strongly within his images, utilizing the language that we employ to mark and navigate the built environment. Recent, and ongoing projects have explored; the urban landscape, militarized land, and landfill sites.
