A new exhibition by Braidwood artist @Julian Laffan. 'Illuminated Artefacts' presents works which focus on the intimacy of interiors. Julian creates unique works by directly colouring his hand-carved woodblocks with pencil, oil and gouache. His works are a prolonged meditation on an individual moment, carved and suspended as an image in timber and beautifully executed. Visit @beavergalleries for further information. #beavergalleries #julianlaffan #beavergalleries
