agus anois, an Nuacht…

mixed media by Eoin Mac Lochlainn

English translation below…

Bhuel, ní gach lá a théann Mam ar an Daingean – agus ní gach lá a bhíonn iriseoir le Nuacht RTÉ ina suí i mo stiúideo i mBaile Átha Cliath. Ach sin mar a tharla le déanaí nuair a tháinig Irene Ní Nualláin ar chuairt orm le caint faoi dheacrachtaí saol an ealaíontóra (!).

Ní bhím ag smaoineamh ar seo go ró-mhinic, tá s’agat, ach bhí comhrá againn faoin mBreatimeacht agus an phraiseach atá i ndán dúinn má (nó nuair) a tharlaíonn sé. Cinnte bheadh deacrachtaí ag an teorainn. Dá mbeadh taispeántas á eagrú agam san Tuaiseceart, bheadh sé go dona dá mbeadh orm stopadh ag an teorainn, na boscaí go léir a oscailt agus míniú a thabhairt dosna saighdiúirí faoin sórt stuif a chruthaíonn ealaíontóirí comhaimseartha na laethanta seo!

Ar ndóigh, tá rudaí i bhfad Éireann níos tábhachtaí le socrú acu, is éascaí caint ná coisíocht, ach ar aon chaoi, is féidir an t-agallamh a fheiscint anseo  (Tá mise le feiscint tar éis 17 nóiméad). Tá alt ar an suíomh idirlíona faoi chomh maith agus is féidir é sin a léamh ach cliceáil anseo

Ah yes, it’s still Seachtain na Gaeilge – the Irish Language festival that lasts for over 2 weeks (!) but I’m just going to mention a television interview I did during the week on TG4.  It can be seen here and you’ll see me after seventeen and a half minutes.

They also put a feature on the TG4 website. You can see it here.

Well, they came to my studio and they stayed a while (although the final edit is quite short). It might be interesting for you to see the present state of my studio, some of the works in progress and also some old ones that are still on the wall… The piece that you see at the top of this blog post has been hanging there since 2006 and the second image is from this week’s lot of watercolours.  Interesting that they use a similar colour scheme.

I wonder how that is… any thoughts?

  1. Brilliant to see you on television, and yes, very interesting indeed to see your studio and the many treasures therein. 🙂 I’m always amazed at the wealth of detail that you manage in the smaller works.
