According to the Irish Times in January this year, Susanne Wawra was one of the most promising Emerging Artists of 2017. And she’s one of the artists taking part in our panel discussion on Friday at the Olivier Cornet Gallery – to discuss the Concerning the Other collaborative art project.
My, but we have an impressive panel assembled for the occasion, you would be mad to miss it!
I’ll be there too, ar ndóigh, I’ll be the one taking notes. If I wasn’t an artist, you know, I would’ve liked to have been a writer. Not someone like Joyce, mind – I have to say that when I first read his description of lovely Dublin Bay as ‘the snot-green sea’, that turned me right off.
Did he never see the sun sparkling on the water? Did he never stand in wonder on the shore? Surely the man that is not moved by those endless glistening waves is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils…
But the painting above is by Susanne Wawra. It is entitled: Wursthimmel or ‘sausage sky’. It mightn’t look like your average day on Sandymount Strand but – you have to admit that it has some life in it. You might be wise to bring your umbrella on that particular day.
Anyway… here’s me bus! Check out her website (link below) and… hopefully, we’ll all meet at the Panel discussion at 6.30pm on Friday.
