Los Angeles, CA – Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is extending “Patrick Graham – fact of the matter”, a major exhibition of monumental paintings and drawings through August 31, 2010. The exhibition receiving formidable critical response features the most recent works by Graham, widely regarded as Ireland’s most important contemporary artist. The exhibition includes a number of the artist’s most iconic, large-scale paintings of the last 25 years.

The Graham exhibition is accompanied by a new fully illustrated hardcover publication with insightful and provocative essays by art historians and critics, Marlena Donohue and Peter Frank, and Jack Rutberg.

“Patrick Graham – fact of the matter” offers a rare opportunity to view a major presentation of Graham’s works; some recently exhibited in the critically acclaimed museum exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” presented by the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane.

Graham has been credited by art historians with changing the face of Irish painting, bringing it into the 20th and 21st century, and has been recognized by Ireland as a “living national treasure” through his induction into Aosdána since 1986. His impact on Los Angeles artists has been dramatically felt on those rare occasions when his works have been exhibited; the last time in 2002. Artists are conspicuously noted among Graham’s collectors. Critical praise has been no less noteworthy.

Recent reviews on this exhibition include
Artillery Magazine;
The Huffington Post;
Uploaded Magazine;
arts•meme;
Flavorpill.

Art critic Donald Kuspit has declared: “Patrick Graham’s paintings are masterpieces…on a grand physical, emotional and intellectual scale…they are among the most complicated, salient reflections on modern existence that have been made…” And critic Peter Frank has observed: “In Graham, Ireland finally has a painter-draughtsman to match its writers”.

INTERVIEW: EMAN BARAKAT

Interviews | October 7, 2020

"I prefer to work with natural, familiar material such as stone and metal to create my own work, and I depends on create forms using details abstract and simple to focus on the beauty of shape, I chose animals shape and abstract it, cause it have more vitality and ability to make different movement, and trying to make a dialogue between shapes in some work, but now I am trying to focus on the idea of beginning and how to find away from it till you find your own way (when I look at my work and checked it I feel like it’s all talking about the beginning when everything started – all we trying to do will be better if we found our real start). Now I am working on creates new shapes inspired from all I did before and develop it, to present my first solo exhibition next year." Read more
