Nach ait an mac an saol – Isn’t Life strange.
This is the final instalment of the Covid Eyes online art project. My three months of Tuesdays have come and gone.
When I painted the self-portrait above, I was thinking that by now, we’d be emerging back into the world, tentatively perhaps, but ultimately, with new resolution and renewed hope.
Afraid we’ll have to wait a little longer.
In any case, all my “eye paintings” can now be seen on a special Covid Eyes page on the website – and you can also see the original paintings in full there by clicking on the links provided.
Now, a bit more news for you – most of these paintings will be on display “in real life” at the Olivier Cornet Gallery during October. Just for a short while.
Details to follow later but for the moment, let me just say that all the correct precautions are being followed in the gallery to safeguard visitors, and indeed, art galleries are probably the safest places you can visit at the moment.
