Writers Claire-Louise Bennett, Tara Bergin, Leontia Flynn, Alice Lyons, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Rosie O’Reilly, Jessica Traynor and Suzanne Walsh respond to the work of six artists from The Niland Collection, using the rhetorical device called ekphrasis. A form of writing originating from the Greek word for ‘description’, this technique has the power to transform the visual into surprising and unusual new writing.

Works by Dorothy Cross, Clodagh Emoe, Marie Foley, Louis le Brocquy, George (AE) Russell and John Butler Yeats are the inspiration for these unique and surprising new works.
