New Book – The Collection: Cork University Hospital Art Collection

The Collection: Cork University Hospital Art Collection

Available to order now.

Last week I received my copy of The Collection: Art Donated To Cork University Hospital. My painting Volume V, part of the original 70 art works, now at 260 and growing, donated to the collection in 1998, is included.

It’s on page 87 by the way, and it’s nice to get an mention in the introduction alongside Amanda Coogan.

“The art works provide solace and comfort to many patients and visitors in the hospital and this catalogue is an important record of these art works” – J.A. McNamara, CEO of CUH.

The Collection book was launched by actor Jeremy Irons back in August 2017.

“The Hospital believes in the importance of art for the well-being of all our patients. The underlying significance of this collection is a belief in the healing power of art and the ability to improve the experience of people attending the hospital, especially to those going through great stress and personal crisis.”Hotpress Magazine

The Collection includes work by Katherine Boucher Beug, Dorothy Cross, William Crozier, John Minihan, Sarah Walker, Sean Keating and more.

At first my painting, Volume V, was hanging down by the X-Ray department. Later I heard it had been moved up to the ‘Psyche’ Department. It’s three and a half foot (width) by four and a half foot (height) and contains a homage to Degas’, and as my old friend Jim called her ‘Tra La La At The Circus’.

You’ll find it.In the halls or in the book.

Did you order a copy or two yet?

My copy took just over a week to arrive, with great quality  reproductions and work putting this together by the team.

The Ocean

‘Between 15 and 20 metres beneath this surface, crossed legs and facing west, I levelled off, closed my eyes for a moment and then looked in to the ocean, the Atlantic Ocean…’

But it wasn’t the Atlantic Ocean, it was something else, something much bigger.

This and a few posts from my two week Residency / Not Residency up now.
