Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is delighted to present this exhibition of photographs which ask the viewer to look at what we see every day in a different way.

Taking landmarks that the people of Northern Ireland see regularly, Kevin explores the detail and beauty of our built environment by creating a kaleidoscopic view of colour and pattern. Kevin commented My work emphasises the positive aspect of our culture. The legacy of the past has been a source for many artistic works, through my work I want people to appreciate the strength and beauty of our environment showing what we all know but in a very new and dynamic way.”

Kevin’s work aims to encourage the viewer to realise the beauty in our everyday surroundings, from the Grand Opera House to City Hall, Belfast Castle to the Titanic Centre. This fantastic exhibition urges us to stop and take a closer look at what is around is in our daily lives.

Kaleidoscopic Views will be on display in the Conservatory Gallery, Clotworthy House until Saturday 23 July 2016.
