The intention of this life-size painting is to reflect the contentious nature of the abortion legislation rather than to represent ether side of the debate. However, it does represent the subjects around whom the debate rotates. Initially I left the painting untitled however having given it much thought I believe that the title ‘Subjects of Debate‘ perfectly captures the essence of my concept and the public scrutiny and vulnerability of the protagonists. My aspiration for ‘Subjects of Debate‘ is that it acts as a future reminder of the debate itself, and reflects this period of Ireland’s constitutional evolution.
I’m delighted to let you know that ‘Subjects of Debate‘ is currently on view in Gallery Zozimus Francis Street, Dublin 8 (enquiries; Vincent (003531) 453 9057 firstname.lastname@example.org)
