Ahem. Cue lights, camera, aaaand action ... for Sky TV's iMayo programme covering my recent 'Nautica' exhibition at Mayo Contemporary in Castlebar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3HqrUH1fcQ
“During my visits there I was stunned by the steep, near-vertical walls, and gigantic steel sluice gates fifteen metres below sea level,” said Brian, “the contrast between the massive ships and industrial machinery towering above the workers was something I found irresistible given its dramatic visual appeal. But the extraordinary range of the dock’s muted tones contrasting so starkly against the vibrant colours of the ships, with nothing but steel gates to prevent this hidden world from being engulfed by the sea, took my breath away.”
AN exhibition of paintings by one of Ireland’s greatest artists has just opened at Mayo Antiques & Fine Art at the Castle Street car park in Castlebar. The gallery and showrooms, over two floors, was opened just before Christmas by business partners Les O’Neill and Sean McNeela and they specialise in antiques and contemporary fine art.
