Loop art by Anthony Lyttle

Designer: Anthony Lyttle

Director: Lenny Abrahamson

In Melissa and Nick’s kitchen in Conversation With Friends we find an eye-catching bold artwork on the wall, made of red looped lines on a white background.

This piece is a woodblock print called “Loop” by Anthony Lyttle. “My drawings are made through a process of mark making, using mostly dots, dashes and lines, and running through horizontals and vertical directions, as in the warp and weft in weaving. Each layer of marks built up over the previous layer partly obscuring but also revealing and repeating” says Lyttle about his approach.

The artist Anthony Lyttle was born in Kenya, and lived in Ethiopia before moving to Ireland as a teenager. He studied Painting at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and the Byam Shaw, Central St Martins, London. He is currently living in the Blackstairs mountains, County Carlow and is a lecturer at IT Carlow, Wexford Campus School of Art and Design.

‘Loop’ as seen in this Conversations With Friends interior and other Lyttle artworks, are available from Graphic Studio Gallery, Dublin.
