Description

Michael Ashur (b.1950) UNTITLED, c.1980

oil on canvas

signed in pencil on reverse

122 by 122cm., 48 by 48in.

Michael Ashur had numerous successful one-man exhibitions with the David Hendriks Gallery and the Arts Council Gallery in Belfast among others during the period of 1974 to 1987 as well as participating in group shows including the Irish Exhibition of Living Art, Oireachtas Art Exhibition, the Ulster Museum and the RHA among others. His works are characterised by their large scale, striking use of colour and highly technical compositions. His mathematical precision serves to blur the lines between the domains of art and science with the solar system and celestial objects comprising a significant source of inspiration for the artist. Rare to the auction circuit, Ashur has exhibited extensively on an international scale and represented Ireland in 1981 at the Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, International Festival of Painting.
