Join artist Martin Gale for a discussion of his attachment to Irish lanscape, stories and characters of rural countryside, and technical decisions, freedom and ideas that led and developed his artistic life, and summed up experiences of generations of Irish people in his paintings.
Seamus Heaney has written of Martin Gale’s paintings, they silence us, “they invite us to look twice, then to stand still looking until we begin to wonder if there is such a thing as innocent bystanding. They hold in a single, steady, local focus the reality and anxiety of the time”.
