Exhibition by John Behan R.H.A.

“The present exhibition is a reflection and summary of my recent output as a sculptor. The exhibition reflects on the themes that have concerned me throughout my life as a sculptor. However, my immediate concerns are the relationship between the Irish Famine of 1845-1852 and the parallel crisis of Syria and North Africa of today. The exhibition reflects my interest in the Bull as a phenomena in society along with Famine Ships and Oar Boats which have their origin in the ‘Broighter Boat of Derry’. The ships and boats symbolize the journey of life which we all share. I hope that my artistic concerns communicate with the public and with art lovers everywhere”
