Study is a focused case-study of a single work from the David Roberts Collection. Each work in the series is displayed with in-depth research material: from its technical production, origin and history to its position in the artist’s practice and contemporary debates.

Study of Shattered Red Tiles with Old Bricks and Decaying Wood, 1973-74 by Boyle Family will be the fifth in the series of studies of works from the David Roberts Collection. The fiberglass and mixed media work will be shown together with other works by Boyle Family in the Collection.

Previous Studies include works by Victor Man, Carole Bove, Bruce McLean and Martin Boyce.
