Description: Donald Teskey RHA (b.1956)Oliver Bond Street, DublinOil on canvas, 168 x 213.5 cm (66 x 84'')Signed and dated 2004. Also signed, inscribed and dated versoDonald Teskey was born in Castle Matrix, Co. Limerick. He rose quickly to critical acclaim after his first solo show, just two years after graduating from the Limerick College of Art and Design in 1978. Since then he has shown throughout Ireland as well as the U.S.A, the U.K, Canada and Germany to name but a few. His work has featured in many prominent collections both at home and abroad, including the Arts Council, The Irish Museum of Modern Art, AIB, KPMG, Limerick City Gallery of Art, OPW and the Ulster Bank. Arguably one of the best known painters of his generation, Teskey has received countless favourable reviews from numerous publications. He has also been the recipient of multiple awards from institutions such as the RHA, EV+A as well as the Royal Ulster Academy. Teskey is widely known for his depictions of the manmade world and urban landscape. In this instance, he deals with the historic Oliver Bond Street, named after the Irish revolutionary, situated in the heart of The Liberties. His use of rich texture details the dense muted brick of the newer developments. This contrasts strikingly with the oxidized copper roofing of the iconic St.Patricks tower, formally the largest smock windmill in Europe. Teskey’s exploration of the passing of time on a human scale as well as his consideration of the everyday allows us to reconsider historic Dublin architecture which is so often overlooked.Isobel Foley NCAD
