Born in Kilkenny in 1949, John Doherty studied architecture in Dublin before moving to Sydney where he began his career as an artist. He divided his time between Ireland and Australia before settling in West Cork. He observes life in Ireland with wit and gentle humour and exquisite detail. ‘Totems of the Highway’ was a 5 year collaboration with Stoney Road Press. This suite of 9 prints evokes the Irish landscape, and the inevitable changes with the arrival of the motor car.
