Meaning & Analysis

A middle-aged man in a green shirt occupies a central part of the print, embodying the challenge of the military service as he appears overshadowed by the stencilled image of a weapon and bold splashes of paint. Before creating When We Were Kings (2012) or The Unveiling (2014), the famous screen prints that cemented his status as an international artist, Harrington produced large-scale murals around New York, Miami, Paris, London and Copenhagen. The fusion of various techniques in Where The Sun Does Shine reminds the viewer that Harrington’s creative identity originates from street art of his native Cork, and only later involved interest in printmaking mediums. The artist commented in this context of influences on his art: "I'm interested in empire and cycles of power and how we're seeing a shift away from European dominance".
