Artist Talk Magazine: Presence in Absence by Ian Cumberland

Date: 19 August 2020

JD Malat Gallery is proud to present Presence in Absence, a solo exhibition by leading Irish artist Ian Cumberland. From 7 September to 5 October, Presence in Absence will show a series of hyper-realist portraits staged in engaging installations.
