The Sean Nós & The Sea
The Sean Nós – literally the old ways – are inextricably linked to the sea. Folklore, fiction and half-truths – all feed into our mythology – the spine that tells us who we are on this island, and beyond that out in the physical, ‘fluich’ landscape.
In this work, I am trying to distill the essence of the old ways and the sea. I have spent much time now by the sea – studying it and finding in it’s essence my own, new way to paint.
