Adam's IMPORTANT IRISH ART Auction Wednesday 24th March 2021 Important Irish Art | 24 th March 2021 137 128 CATHERINE DELANEY (B.1965) Moore Street Pram Bronze, 33 x 48 x 20cm (13 x 19 x 8’’) Catherine Delaney was born in Dublin in 1965 and followed in the footsteps of her father, the cele- brated Irish sculptor Edward Delaney, by pursuing a career in the arts. After graduating from NCAD in 1984 she continued her study in sculpture at the Johnson Atelier in Princeton, New Jersey. She obtained a two-year scholarship in the Akademie Der Bildenden Kunste, Munich in Germany in 1986 working in the field of sculpture and photography. She has undertaken a number of public art projects most recently a large-scale work, commissioned as part of the Ballymun Regeneration pro- gramme which consisted of silver aluminium which had been cast and embedded into the ground. She was elected to membership of Aosdana in 2008. Her work is represented in numerous public and private collections in Ireland, the UK and the United States. Delaney works in a variety of mediums from painting to sculpture, large-scale installations and photography. This present piece, a smaller version of her work in bronze, of a stylized carriage pram, immediately brings to mind the of women on Moore street, selling fruit and vegetables from their buggies. It is synonymous with the busy market streets of Dublin. Despite the fact that the pram is empty, no child or mother to be found, the object has taken on its own significance, becoming almost a monument to the city. Delaney’s handling of the bronze is robust, full of texture, in which the physi- cality of the material is paramount. At the core of her work there is a consistent engagement with her wider surroundings. She makes works that respond to our lived environment, that engage us on a public and personal level.
