Cork Printmakers celebrate 25 years during the Midsummer Festival

Here’s the etching I have been working on for Cork Printmakers exhibition at The Atrium, Cork City Hall this coming Friday.  When I see sails passing on the distant horizon I find myself imagining what it would be like to be on board, where are they headed for? How long have they been at sea? Who’s turn is it to make the tea in their ever moving world? When we were asked, for this exhibition, to consider the future and all its potential I immediately thought of a vessel on the open ocean choosing which point of the compass to follow, each direction leading to great things and adventures along the way. The piece I made for this show is made of two copper plates etched with aquatint. The title Cóir Gaoithe means fair winds, a blessing you might give a sailor setting out to sea wishing them favourable conditions for the journey ahead.
