Lapis Lazuli : Opens 21st May @ Hamilton Gallery Sligo


Lapis Lazuli :

Opening this Saturday 21 May 2022 at The
Hamilton Gallery Sligo, Lapis Lazuli with a whole bunch of artists celebrating Yeats day visual responses to his poem

Lapis lazuli’, written on 25th July 1936 by W. B. Yeats was published in his “Last Poems”. The poem was dedicated to Harry Clifton, who gave him with a Lapis carving on his 70th birthday. Intrigued Yeats uses the stone to meditate on the role of art in the face of the tragic world and war.

This pieces made last year, around this time of year when Sea Thrift blossoms on coastal rocks. The stone carving in the lower centre, on which this painting dwells in honour of WB, is Eight Drunken Immortals in a boat - Taoist Gods (a ship of wise fools).

When sea winds swept | 2021 | Nick Miller | Oil on linen | 127 x 107 cm.

Film Launched: Patrick Hall in Conversation with Nick Miller

Pat-talking-1

https://www.facebook.com/events/277674024199211

On 6 Nov. 2021, The Model was delighted to welcome Patrick Hall and Nick Miller to discuss their collaborative exhibition, Patrick Hall; Beginnings, curated by Nick Miller.

This recorded conversation presents an enlightening insight into the works from the past and present of Hall’s long artistic career, from his emergence as an artist in London in the 1950s, to works made in the present day at his studio in rural Sligo.

The title of the show nods to the defining courageous nature at the heart of all of Hall’s work, and the way in which he approaches the act of drawing and painting with a beginner’s mind.

Special thanks to our sponsors; the Arts Council Ireland, and Sligo County Council.

Show extended until 30th Jan 2022

Coming out for a first ever showing after 23 years in studio storage, I am delighted this painting will be seen in Co Mayo, where it was made on site in 1998 - the first large scale
TRUCKSCAPE I ever made, as a novice 4 tonne truck driver reversing ever closer to the cliff edge. A painting that holds all the thrill of adventure & discovery –  of being able to paint on site, in nature at scale but protected from the elements.
