The future and the lack of has been cited as the basis for a number of exhibitions in Ireland and Europe in the last year. Ideas concerning the Modernist project, Idealism and Utopia from a post-Post-Modern position have come into common circulation amongst artists. But can we still envision a future? Using the grammatical classification of Future Perfect as a starting point and as a play on words, artists were asked to investigate or respond to all of the aforementioned ideas.

Located in Dublin's city center, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, originally called The Municipal Gallery of Modern Art, houses one of Ireland's foremost collections of modern and contemporary art. The original collection, donated by the Gallery's founder Sir Hugh Lane in 1908, has now grown to include over 2000 artworks, ranging from the Impressionist masterpieces of Manet, Monet, Renoir and Degas to works by leading national and international contemporary artists. The Gallery presents dynamic schedules of temporary exhibitions, seminars and public lectures, publications and educational projects.

"The Raft of the Medusa" is a magnificent work by French painter Théodore Géricault (1791–1824) and was a starting point for my painting. I am trying to analyze our modern society and its injustice.
