The Idir Dhá Aigne exhibition was reviewed on Culture NI by Joanne Savage.
Some of the comments relating to my work were;
'O'Hare's shop, again transfigured into something poetic and compelling through the use of light and the careful application of paint'
'Doherty works the paint towards a very different aesthetic that is in service to a more reserved, muted look at the Belfast cityscape. He finds beauty in odd places and this is the strength of the work.'
'Doherty manages to make a pedestrian island in the middle of a road replete with traffic signs and an industrial looking grey corrugated iron building the backdrop to something more profound........This muted vision unfolds into an astute exploration of cultural tension, here achieved with quiet commitment and subtlety.'

I did this quick sketch of O'Hares shop on the Falls Road for Meon Eile, the online video news and arts channel. The short video takes you through my sketching process which lasted about 15 minutes.
