Lecture by Conor Walton, artist
6.30pm Thursday 5 February 2015
Over the last twenty years Conor Walton’s portraits, figure paintings and still lifes have won international acclaim and established him as a distinctive voice in the field of representational painting. Essentially a figurative painter in the European tradition, he sets out ‘to maintain his craft at the highest level, using paint to explore issues of truth, meaning and value’. His works are attempted answers to the three questions in the title of Gauguin’s famous painting: ‘What are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?’ This talk will provide an introduction to his work, his methods and philosophy.
Lecture in Friends of the National Gallery of Ireland, No.5 South Leinster St. (beside National Gallery) at 6.30pm followed by a wine reception.
Cost: €12 (students €5)
