About the Project
Damn Fine Print proudly presents a new collaboration with leading Irish contemporary artist Niall de Buitléar.
The work comprises three abstract screenprints, created in de Buitléar’s unique style through an intricate combination of hand drawing and print.
While at first glance these works are mesmerisingly simple, further inspection reveals a complexity and intricate detail that has become a calling card of de Buitléar’s creations.
Describing his process, the artist tells us: “My work involves the ongoing development of an abstract vocabulary through the layering and repetition of simple forms into more complex structures.
“Drawing is central to my work and is the basis for the development of each piece. I am interested in how ideas that begin with drawing can flow into other media and how one drawing can be interpreted differently in multiple media, in both two and three dimensions.
“In my two-dimensional work repeated lines create a sense of rhythm and movement, in a sculpture those same lines become the cut edges of stacked materials creating three-dimensional structures.”
All three prints are designed in such a way that they can be framed and hung as a collection or as individual pieces.
