From afar, on a window, the drawing looks like a tribal pattern of circles and white contour lines. It is so smooth it could be a transfer or a large window sticker. When I come up close I can see that it was not made by a machine – as I had initially thought – but by hand with an ordinary white paint marker. Thus begins my experience of Niall the Buitlear’s show Out of Order at the LAB in Dublin; an exhibition that presents a body of work that operates on two levels: from a distance and up close and personal.
