Niall de Buitléar’s small paintings, built from intricate concentric patterns, are geometric but also suggestive of organic processes. They equate to the world outside: complex and orderly but also contingent and unpredictable. Their handmade precision makes them visually fascinating. You could quite happily live with any one of them and never tire of it.
Lance Wyman is a designer specialising in branding and wayfinding systems. He is best known for the branding of the 1968 Mexico Olympics. Other projects include the Mexico City Metro System (above) and the identity and signage for the Minesotta Zoo (pictured below).
Below is a video of a talk Wyman gave about his work at the Walker Arts Centre.
I had a painting included in the PP/S Gala Benefit Auction with Whyte’s at the Irish Georgian Society last month. Above is an image from the catalogue showing my piece on the right opposite a drawing by Ronnie Hughes.
