ART John Be­han: Past and Present

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - AD

John Be­han. Solomon Fine Art, Balfe St Un­til Novem­ber 19 solomon­fin­eart.ie

A pi­o­neer­ing and cel­e­brated sculp­tor in bronze, John Be­han has helped shape the sculp­tural iconog­ra­phy of con­tem­po­rary Ire­land. His sig­na­ture an­i­mal is the bull, which nat­u­rally fea­tures in this show of new and past work, built around the theme of 1916. The stub­born, durable char­ac­ter of his work has to do with more than the na­ture of the ma­te­rial. Each piece is closely ar­gued and sure of its place in the world, while main­tain­ing nu­ance and sen­si­tiv­ity.
