Born in Dublin in 1920, but based in Canada for most of his adult life, artist George Wallace specialised in printmaking and sculpture. For the first time in Ireland, see etchings, monotypes, woodcuts and drawings from a prolific career of over 50 years. At times humorous, and always insightful, these works are both personal and universal. Through powerful imagery the artist comments on everything from the boredom of suburban life to human vulnerability and ageing.
