O’Connell is named after O’Connell street in Dublin and related to the exhibition at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin in 1995 featuring the works of Albert Irvin OBE RA. It is particularly complex in composition and mark-making for Irvin, the architectural structure perhaps suggesting Irish doors and windows. Framed and mounted in white. The Late Albert Irvin OBE RA continued to work with incredible energy up until his death at the age of 92 in March 2015. This energy is captured in his vibrantly-coloured abstract work. The urban location of Irvin’s ex-schoolroom studio and the city environment in which he lived and worked fuelled his paintings and prints which are often named after local streets or areas.
