About Eoin Mac Lochlainn and his participation in Drawing on Joyce, an Olivier Cornet Gallery exhibition, part of the James Joyce Centre's 2018 Bloomsday Festival, Dublin, Ireland.

Eoin Mac Lochlainn’s current body of work is examining the notion of ‘Home’ and looking at Irish emigration and the Diaspora. He is interested in exploring how art may produce a deeper and more enduring understanding of the contemporary experience than do media images.

Eoin won the Golden Fleece Award for my painting in 2008. In 2010, he was shortlisted for the Davy Portrait Award and I won the ESB Keating McLaughlin Medal at the Royal Hibernian Academy Exhibition that same year. His work is in the collections of: The Office of Public Works (Ireland), AXA Insurance, AIB Bank, Bank of Ireland, The University of Limerick, Wesley College, the Boyle Civic Collection, Donegal County Council and in many private collections in Ireland and abroad. He is represented by the Olivier Cornet Gallery.

Note on work for the show:

"As I researched and learned about Leopold Bloom, I began to think of him as a lonely walker, walking the streets day and night, watching, walking and listening, like a person who is homeless. I began a series of night paintings, paintings of the back streets of Dublin at night."
