A new crop of photos…
The past week has been a fruitful one where painting projects were completed on hand built canvases, and another photo project produced more prints in the darkroom. Our “one minute sculpture” project tested speed, creativity and sometimes balance, yielding some mysterious and imaginative photographs. On Thursday some people went to the under 18’s disco at the Lava Lounge in Wexford town. We were told the Cow House crew was the life of the party.
Monday morning we headed for Dublin. Architect Joan Murphy gave an architectural walking tour of the city, taking us through Viking remains, medieval graveyards and Georgian mansions. We saw some exciting contemporary art at exhibitions in the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College, and the Hugh Lane Gallery, and even found time for shopping on Grafton Street. We enjoyed Beschoff’s famous fish and chips by the river Liffey before leaving for the Cow House on Tuesday evening.
After breakfast pancakes on Wednesday everyone was refreshed and ready for large scale charcoal drawings and our last life drawing session. Now, with just four days to go everyone is focusing on their self directed projects, spending lots of time printing in the dark room, drawing and painting in the studio and working with their mentor to develop their ideas.
