Labyrinths, Language, Pyramids, and Related Acts
Jan van der Marck
Patrick Ireland: Labyrinths, Language, Pyramids, and Related Acts is the first attempt to review the broad range of work in the visual arts produced by this wonderfully creative individual. Brian O'Doherty is very well known in contemporary art circles; his penetrating insights into the work of visual artists since the 1960s have had a wide and profound impact. Less well known is the fact that O'Doherty, a.k.a. Patrick Ireland, has also had a long and successful career as a practicing artist.
"Space is a kind of jungle, a complete chaos with no rhyme or reason at all. The ropes draw temporary propositions that give brief visions of order. But the order is always lapsing into chaos again...For the pieces change radically with even small moves. Thus they are to a degree unknowable."
