These are ‘Blood and Concrete ‘ 1 & 2
Each piece 100 x 80cm on canvas plus frame.
They were exhibited last month at Green Fuse Gallery in Westport, County Mayo.
I have submitted them to ‘Cairde Visual’ at the Model, in Sligo for their annual juried Summer show as part of Cairde Festival. I should hear soon if they have been selected. Fingers crossed!
These pieces developed out of my response to images of destruction in Aleppo, Syria. However, I don’t see them as sad paintings, but abstract images in their own right. It’s up to the viewer to make their own interpretation. I would be interested to hear from anyone if they have a particular reaction. Thanks
