The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
Brian Fay is an artist and lecturer in Fine Art at the Dublin Institute of Technology. His practice, rooted in drawing, uses the materiality of pre-existing artworks and objects to examine their complex relation to time.

Selected group shows include Motion Capture: Drawing and the Moving Image, Glucksman Gallery, Cork, Projet Gutenberg, Galerie Jeanroch Dard, Paris and Pull, Bite Rally, NCAD Gallery, Dublin.
His work is in the National Drawing Collection, and the collections of The Crawford Art Gallery, DIT, Office of Public Works and private collections. In 2014 he completed a practice led PhD at Northumbria University on drawing and temporalities. He is the winner of the 2014 Derwent International Drawing Prize and the 2016 AXA Drawing Prize.
