An Chéad Tine, would like to invite you to the opening of 'Speculative Fiction' an exhibition of works by Darren Fancis Caffrey.
This exhibition sees Darren return to painting having worked in various time-based media such as video and live performance. Speculative Fiction will engage with the public gallery as a site of unreal encounter, the picture posing as reference to the world outside.
This exhibition will also introduce a second project, with paintings provided as imagery for a set of Oracle Cards (released 2024).

Born in 1982, Caffery grew up in Dublin where he studied under Sean Lynch and AmandaRalph, and graduated from IADT with an MA in Visual Art Practice in 2013. Darren is living in Kilkenny for a number of years.
