New works purchased by the Rua Red for our Collection

30th March 2021

Rua Red is pleased to announce we have added four new works to our Collection.

Rua Red has a policy of supporting artists at all stages of their career. One of the new ways that Rua Red has implemented this policy is by selecting and purchasing works from the annual Winter Open exhibition to form a new collection for the organisation. The works will go on show within the building on a rotational basis.

This year Rua Red has purchased the works of four artists whose pieces have conceptually connected with 2020.

The purchased works are:

'Made in China 7' by Spencer Glover

'A New Normal' by Denis Burke

'Dublin Airport' by Aisling Ní Aodha

'Infested' by Celine Sheridan

Denis Burke is a multidisciplinary creative from Dublin, Ireland. He graduated from IT Tallaght in 2015 with a BA Creative Digital Media and a PgDip Advertising and Digital Communications from TUDublin in 2020. He has won a number of awards in the fields of photography, film and design as well as music under his pseudonym Aerbeatz. He currently works for ROTHCO.

Aisling-Ór Ní Aodha is a visual artist based in Dublin and Wicklow. Her practice interrogates ‘the aesthetic of environmental perception’ through the medium of sound, text, sculpture and painting. Recent works include Situland (2019), Old Invitations (2019) an archival student forum event held in the Douglas Hyde Gallery, and The Ghost Hole Memory Bank (2018), a performance and installation as part of the 2018 International Literature Festival. She is the 2019 recipient of the Fire Station Artists’ Studio Graduate Sculpture Award.
