STEPHEN SHORTT                             ON BRITAIN'S DOORSTEP

NO SURRENDER MAP OF IRELAND
Stephen Shortt has created a major series of works about his personal experience of seemingly interminable conflict in Northern Ireland entitled "On Britain's Doorstep". This expansive body of work is an objective and penetrating look at Ireland's "Troubles" executed with considerable aesthetic proficiency, it is expressive and emotive while simultaneously remaining accessible and understandable to a greater audience. This exhibition has toured Canada and the U.S. with presentations at such notable venues as Mercer Union, Toronto; Vu, Quebec; and C.E.P.A. Buffalo, New York; among many others. "On Britain's Doorstep" is a body of work particularly admirable for its non-proselytising and open minded approach, as well as its consummately skilful execution, presenting the viewer with a compellingly clear articulation of all sides of this complex political situation.
