Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen, Co.Cork
A panel discussion with Frieda Meaney, Danny Osborne, zoologist Dr. John Quinn, and poet and navigator, Theo Dorgan will take place on Saturday 1 April.
Danny Osborne and Frieda Meaney have a lot in common. Both have lived on the Beara Peninsula on the western seaboard, on and off for the past 35 years. Both have migrated to various other countries during that time and now are back living and working in Beara again. Both continue to travel, collecting material, and collaborating with other artists and practitioners. Both artists engage with the landscape in an elemental way, through trekking, sea swimming, boating, archaeological exploration and often working outdoors.
This interest and engagement takes them into the areas of geology, biology, marine science, zoology and biodiversity and is presented in this exhibition through painting, print, video installation and sculpture, combining scientific with artistic interpretations of the natural world.
