'Victory is Coming'
South Circular Road, Brookefield Road, Dublin 8
Dublin City Council
Historically, the Gladiolus flower symbolises courage and victory after a long battle. The location of this box is beside St James’ Hospital and features an older man and a young woman in scrubs surrounded by these
flowers. In the short term, this artwork represents victory for all the frontline workers of this hospital after a trying year. In the longer term, St James’ hospital is soon to become the national cancer centre of excellence in 2022, so this image could be a symbol of victory for all the patients who will travel from all over the country to be treated here too. The artist hopes that it would stand as something small but positive
to be seen by all those who frequent the hospital.
I am currently a Visual Communications mature student in DIT, (finishing summer of 2020, please god!) with huge interest in illustration. Following my degree, I hope to illustrate full time and am very comfortable working in various media. I have previously completed two other Dublin Canvas Artworks (“Tea with Nanny” at Rathfarnham castle in 2020 and “Suburban Paradise”- Firhouse Road, in 2019). I have been a great admirer of the Dublin Canvas Project for many years and would love to continue to be involved this year too.
