Black tulip

Abstract: Eamonn Ceannt (b.1953, Dublin) is a graduate and former Vice President of UCD. His work is notable for its tactile qualities and sinuous forms. Ceannt has travelled extensively over the years including north Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent and lived for a number of years in Kenya. The influence of native and classical art is evident in his work. 'Black Tulip' is one of a series of sculptures based on plant studies. This work was donated to UCD by RKD architects to mark their 100th anniversary.
