An exhibition of paintings by Enzo Marra goes on display at The Lido Stores in Cliftonville this week.
‘Murder Of’ by the London based artist, writer and curator is on show at the Ethelbert Terrace gallery from May 12-May 22
The crows depicted in Murder Of are rendered monochromatically and figuratively reduced almost to the point of abstraction.
The power of the concept of the crow was introduced to Enzo during his art foundation year when he discovered the 1970 publication by British poet, Ted Hughes, Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow
