Dubliners - The Childhood, Adolescence, Adulthood & Public Life Stories, James Joyce Centre, Dublin

6th June - 31st December 2022

My Dubliners series of paintings is a correspondence with James Joyce's original text. Struck by how the themes posed by Joyce are still relevant today, I reconstituted his stories with an imagined visual narrative presented within a 21st century Dublin context. The images are often infused with autobiographical references as I deviate from the original stories at will. The images address only what I see as the core universal question or theme posed in Joyce work. I am especially pleased that this exhibition will be on show durring this years Bloomsday Festival celebrating the 100 anniversary of publication of James Joyce's Ulysses.

Frank Kiely is celebrated for his punchy cityscapes of London, though alongside this body of work Kiely makes pictures that are inspired by some of the most celebrated literary figures: 
William Shakespeare, Jonathan Swift and James Joyce. Kiely finds that certain themes or questions that are raised in these works are universal and are still relevant today. He reimagines aspects of these stories in a 21st century context altering aspects of the original text and occasionally putting in an autobiographical reference.
