Description

Icarus

An intricateĀ  limestone piece. This is a theme that has been with me for many years. I equate the Icarus myth with the artist lifestyle. Chasing a dream, perhaps dreaming too big and just as we think we reached the top, down we fall!

I remember learning aboutĀ  Greek mythology as a kid. It was fantastic, just the stuff to fuel an active imagination. It seems I haven’t grown up yet, Icarus and Atlas still fascinate me.

*The painting behind Icarus in the main photo is by Laurence O’Toole, a fantastic Irish painter. Both were on show for kilkenny arts festival 2018 at the Kilkenny Art Gallery
