Sempre in cerca di una Dublino alternativa? Se siete amanti dell’arte la RHA 185th exhibition è semplicemente imperdibile per voi!
George Dunne, one of the artists of Duke Street Gallery, speaks with Italish.
Con Dubliners, Gente di Dublino, James Joyce dipingeva la Dublino di un centinaio di anni fa. La capitale irlandese non ha certo smesso di farsi raccontare.
“She’s genuinely passionate about painting,” were the words a colleague of mine used to describe Maria Noonan-McDermott: “Not just her own practice, but the work of other artists very different from herself”. I discovered the truth of this assessment when I visited Maria not long after.
Amici di Italish siete pronti a fare la conoscenza con un simpaticissimo pittore dublinese? Lui è Chris McMorrow, un talentuoso autodidatta affascinato soprattutto dai giochi di luce.
Are you ready to meet a cheerful painter from Dublin? He is Chris McMorrow, a talentous self-taught artist charmed by lights and reflections. When he worked as a phone technician in Dublin, he discovered some very unusual points and now he takes photos of every place fascinates him to painting it. His production includes vivid urban landscapes (Dublin, Limerick, Cork, but also Paris, Venice and Lucca) and coastal and rural landscapes that express painter’s passion and curiosity for colour intensity and light.
