On Doubt
Denis Buckley

Past: May 13 → June 8, 2016

Doubt and failure are predominant forces in the lives of those who look to realise an ideal, be they artists or revolutionaries. Denis Buckley explores “doubt in the life of an idealogue” through his monumental painting Unfinished & Abandoned 2016 Painting and his film On Doubt. The artist’s work also questions the tangible influence that art can have on day-to-day affairs. In what way does the rhetoric of, say, Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People or a patriotic pre-1916 play by W.B. Yeats incite others to take action?
