In the Frame: Art at Mason Hayes & Curran – Lisa Joyce
11 December 2018
We are fortunate to have one of the most important corporate art collections of Irish and International contemporary art in Dublin. Included in the collection is “High and Dry-Killala” by Niall Kerrigan.
Lisa Joyce, Partner in our Public, Regulatory and Investigations team, tells us why she has chosen this piece:
"Niall is a graphic designer originally from Dublin, but now based in Killala, Co Mayo. This is from his 'Off Season' project – images of tourist locations in the off season, waiting for the hustle and bustle to start up again. I find the image really quiet and restful, something that can be hard to come by in a big city, or in an open-plan office space like MHC. I'm also from Connemara in Co Galway, which is a very touristy area. In fact, this image reminds me of Rossaveal, the main ferry port to the Aran Islands. Connemara is always beautiful and busy in the summer months, but the winter is completely different. Some might say it's bleak, but the sense of stillness and space is something I love about the off season, so I can relate to what this image captures".
Support of the visual arts is a large part of our CSR strategy and we are proud to sponsor the Royal Hibernian Academy’s (RHA) art education programme, which works with three schools in our local Ringsend area and allows children to learn about and interact with art.
