Cristín Leach reviews an exhibition of paintings by Charles Tyrrell titled Selection from a New Series at the Royal Hibernian Academy, on view through December 21, 2011.

Leach writes:"Monochrome surfaces embrace the turmoil while covering most, or all, of it up, yet what lies beneath carries huge weight... If standing stones, field lines and the sea are present here, it is only as part of our ancestral, collective consciousness."
