Ballinglen Art Foundation Residency
Ballinglen Art Foundation | 1992
I was invited for the first time to The Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Oct. 1992, where I spent the winter. The painting ‘Star Fish Turns’ was painted on discovering a starfish in a nearby rock pool, placing it on it’s back and watching with amazement as it ‘righted’ itself - upright again. These series of paintings come from looking at the minutiae in a landscape – small streams, rock pools, and from collecting flotsam on the beach.
