Loretta Lambkin, Director of Marketing at the Docklands Authority, said, “Martin Richman’s installation at North Wall Quays is one of many initiatives included in the Docklands Authority’s Arts Strategy demonstrating its commitment to the development of the arts and culture throughout the Docklands area. We encourage Dubliners to come and experience this attraction for themselves, particularly after dark when it especially comes to life.”
Martin Richman was educated at St. Martins School of Art in London. His work addresses issues concerning light, colour and space both in the private and public realms. As well as a strong studio practice and producing work for exhibitions and private houses, Martin Richman has completed many public projects from stand-alone sculptures to collaborative works with architects and engineers. Richman is well known for the transformation of Tyseley Energy Waste Facility, in Birmingham (1997) in collaboration with architect Ray Perry – the project received a RSA award.
