Gorman

Born in Dublin in 1946, Richard Gorman was educated in Ireland but has lived and worked in Milan since the 1980s. He has exhibited widely and regularly since the mid 80s, especially in Dublin, London, Milan and Tokyo.

Solo international exhibitions have included shows at Gallery Ihn, Seoul (2004); Koriyama City Museum of Art, Japan (2003); the Centre for Contemporary Graphic Art, Fukushima (2003); Galerie der Spiegel, Cologne (2003); Mitaka City Art Foundation, Tokyo (1999) and Itami City Museum of Art, Osaka (1998). Gorman has received many awards, most notably the Palette d’Or at the 1986 Festival International de Peinture, Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, the Open Award at the EV+A, Limerick in 1987 and the Pollock/Krasner Award in 1996. Gorman is a member of Aosdána and in 2005 he was elected RHA at the Royal Hibernian Academy. His work features in the collections of the Irish Museum of Modern Art; Civic Offices Dublin; Ulster Museum, Belfast; AIB Bank and in numerous private collections.

Gorman first began collaborating with Stoney Road Press in 2003, producing a series of woodblock prints and 3D works. Recently, he has also collaborated with the fashion house Hérmes to produce his designs on their signature silk scarves. A book of his work published by the Joseph & Anni Albers foundation is also forthcoming.

KAN is a major new project by Gorman made at Stoney Road Press in 2015. The images are printed on handmade Indian paper from shaped aluminium plates. KAN is a series of three monumental scale, and six smaller scale, carborundum prints in editions of ten.

KAN takes its title from a Japanese concept. The character 間 (pronounced 'kan') is an essential one in everyday Japanese. The fundamental meaning is “space between,” “gap,” “interval,” “distance.” However, it refers not only to space, but to time as well, meaning, also, "time between," "pause," "break." - Richard Gorman, 2015
