Great morning spent at #EVA16 with the Artist Resource Room @TARR_projects. 2016 EVA International biennial festival, Still (the) Barbarians finishes up next Saturday - 17 July. Below are a few photos I took of the artist Michael Joo's three-part installation 'This beautiful striped wreckage (which we interrogate) . . . at the Sailor's Home, Limerick.
Delighted to say that my wee painting 'Dawn' has been selected for this year's Cairde Visual 2016. The exhibition will open on Tuesday July 5th at 6 pm at the Hyde Bridge Gallery in Sligo and will run until Saturday July 22nd. Looking forward to this and good luck to everyone involved.
It has been a busy month on so many levels, but a good month nonetheless! It began with a glorious week in the Kingdom of Kerry followed by a fabulous day of sketching with #OFFSKETCHGalway (See https://www.facebook.com/offsketchgalway/), my exhibition at the stunning Cliffs of Moher https://twitter.com/CliffsofMoher1 and of course the fantastic weather has kept us all smiling. Enjoy the photos.
A selection of some of my work on show at the Cliffs of Moher - ends on the 8th July.
OFFSKETCHGalway - Beautiful day, beautiful people.
The Kingdom . . .
Delighted to have my first solo exhibition at the Ledge Gallery @ Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre, Co. Clare.
The above painting and the small studies below where inspired by a photograph from Chloe Baker and Oliver Johnson's blog #searchingsafepassage.blogspot.com/ Both of whom traveled from Lesbos Island in Greece to southern Germany in 2015 to gain a better understanding of the situations for refugees along the Balkan Route. I applauded them for what they did and highly recommend that you find time to visit this blog. These works are my small contribution.
