Hughie O’Donoghue. Pharos – Press Release – James Hyman Fine Art


The Irish pictures, The Memory of the House, reflect O’Donoghue’s ongoing preoccupation with points of origin and departure, humble houses, fast crumbling but recorded by the artist in a photographic diary compiled over many years. O’Donoghue has always been concerned with memory and excavating the past and these houses serves as a metaphor for recovery and loss, sites of lost knowledge, history and certainty. Poignantly many of these houses have subsequently been destroyed.
