Les Donaghy returned to the easel a little over four years ago, and quickly established himself on the contemporary art scene. Although probably best known as a portrait painter, Les has used this time to develop the skills required to paint almost any subject matter, and this exhibition tries to show just that.
The title comes from the fact that Les has been branded as an 'ultra-realist' or, as one viewer said, 'it’s like looking at a picture in HD.'
The exhibition itself is in two parts. Some drawings and ‘lower-priced’ works will be presented in the Arts Café, while larger works may be seen in the Arts Centre’s Gallery. Work ranges from eight inches square to a little over a metre, and there is little doubt there is something for everyone to enjoy here.
