The hosiery is used in the sense here that it, ie the female reference, is the thing that is holding the male together. This references Oedipus but also a more sinister reference in the title of the piece towards addictions and mental health issues that are possibly hereditary. This dark title and subject matter contrasts sharply with the bright external colours.
Gallery Zozimus, art gallery, in the centre of Dublin’s Arts and Antiques Quarter of Francis Street, is ideally situated in the centre of a triangle that comprises Christchurch, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Visitor Centre at the Guinness Hop Store.
We hold a collection of Paintings, Sculptures in Bronze, Ceramic, Glass and Wood, Photography and more recently have exhibited Street or Urban art. Our aim is to ensure that you have an exciting array of artworks to choose from so we have created this very special place where you can view a mix of contemporary and traditional works.
Gallery Zozimus represents over 120 artists, some well established and some just starting out.
Just a short walk from this gallery is located the National College of Art and Design.
We regularly hold shows for ceramics students before they finish college to encourage them and also to give them some gallery Experience. This is very rewarding for us.
A solo exhibition of contemporary sculpture and mixed media.

opening... 17th September 2015
Exhibition runs until...3rd October 2015
To date Patrick Colhoun's work has been largely about memory.Much of the artist's early work centered around dark subjects such as death,decay,containment and aggression with a desire to make unsavourory subjects into attractive physical forms.
2015 onwards marks a point in the artist's career where he has drawn a line under the past.
Whilst the work is still heavily influenced by memory,the artist looks back mostly fondly.
Please join us on the opening night
