The Royal Hibernian Academy has awarded Damien Flood the Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Travel Bursary 2014. For the award Flood will undertake a research trip to Dubai and the surrounding desert. The trip will form the basis of his solo show at Grey Noise, Dubai in 2015.

The Bursary of 2,500 is awarded to enable Irish artists to further their studies abroad. This Scholarship is awarded in memory of Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, a lifelong friend and supporter of the visual arts in Ireland. The Purser family, into which Elizabeth was born in 1904, was one of a Dublin circle with many artistic affiliations. Between 1930 and 1980, she moved in this circle which included Sarah Purser - her great aunt, - Jack Yeats, 'A.E.', Mainie Jellett and Mary Swanzy.

As part of the award, the Academy has invited Flood to exhibit a work in the 2015 Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition.
