Painted for the Draw Out urban arts initiative for Limerick national city of culture 2014. This work was based on a collaborative process with local photographer Gerry Andrews and a photograph from his series of images of the Limerick milk market in the 1970′s. While always engaging his subjects before taking their portraits, this particular image was taken at the end of day under fading light of a young girl driving away in a passing car, described by Gerry as a chance shot and therefore leaving the subject unknown. Painted over 7 days, the unknown figure now finds its place on William street, Limerick.
Many thanks to Catherine O’halloran, David, Em, Conor Buckley and the crew.
