In Focus; Boat Builders with Andy Parsons
Wed, 15 April 11.30 am
Over the coming weeks The Model will continue to present its popular talks series In-Focus via Zoom. The first of these talks happens on Weds 15 April and is with Strandhill-based artist Andy Parsons. This talk will focus on a body of work Andy created in response to the Metal Mariners Boat Building project in Finisklin, Sligo, where boats are collectively made and mended.
The talk will take participants on a boat journey, from the creation of small sketches and drawings, to the development of a 14-foot oil painting, that the artist made over an entire year. Parsons' work includes painting, print-making, drawing, artist books and sculpture. His also teaches, writes and curates, and is The Model’s Artist-in-Residence in Sligo University Hospital.
