AIRMAIL #2 • Ladies First

Richard Gorman’stravelling project returns to Assab One. Other stops took place in Tokyo (Yanagisawa Gallery), Belfast (Fenderesky Gallery) and Dublin (SO fineart editions). As in the previous edition in 2017, the artists are all friends of Richard Gorman and Assab One and have been invited to submit from 2 to 6 two-dimensional works, drawings, photographs, collages… The only rules: maximum side 30 cm; support: paper or cardboard; donation for each work €400 equal for all. All the works have been delivered to us by post and will be displayed in the space on different media, but in the meantime you can have fun looking at them and selecting the one or ones you would like to have.

Each of the works can be yours against a liberal contribution to Assab One (as always tax deductible) which will be shared equally with the artist. Simply send an email to donors@assab-one.org with the name of the artist and the full title of the work and you can then come by to review and confirm it at the venue. It will be handed out at the end of the exhibition together with the receipt for the donation.

Richard Gorman

was born in Dublin in 1946. After studying at Trinity College and the Dún Laoghaire School of Art and Design, he moved to Milan in 1980. Richard is best known for his abstract combinations of colours and shapes, and interactions between geometric elements. His work has been greatly influenced by various trips to Japan and encounters with local craftsmen.
Richard has exhibited in public and private institutions both in his home country and internationally, in Europe, England and Japan.
His works can be found in numerous public and private collections. Among others, the collections of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Civic Offices Dublin, the Ulster Museum in Belfast, the AIB Bank, the Annie and Joseph Albers Foundation. He was the first Irish artist commissioned by Maison Hermes to create a silk scarf. In 2015, KAN was his first exhibition in Assab One.
