Sylvester Bourke , 1994 , Co. Louth
Sylvester Bourke was born in Kilkenny in 1928. He studied Architecture and Art in University College, Dublin, and Paris. He was an architect for Louth County Council and a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. The flat quality of this work  coupled with a very distinctive dark palette, lend a surrealistic air to this scene of his native Dromiskin. He died in 2009.
