Artists respond to beauty of Ireland

Artists respond to beauty of Ireland

Last September, a selection of artists was invited to the private island of Inish Turk Beg, where they took up a week-long residency. Interacting and responding to the environment through various mediums, the artists produced a series of works that will go on show this week.

This is the second residency that Inish Turk Beg’s Chief Islander Nadim Sadek has now hosted. Using digital imagery, printmaking, drawing, painting and installation, the artists have explored the landscape and characters on the island in more detail than ever before.

Life Vividly Lived (Part 2), has been curated by Patrick T. Murphy, Director of The Royal Hibernian Academy, and Peter Prendergast, Director of Monstertruck Gallery and Studios, and will be shown at the Monstertruck Gallery in Dublin.

Inish Turk Beg or ‘small island of the wild boar’ is a 60-acre private island resort off the west coast of Ireland. With its own organic smoked fish collection and single malt whiskey, striking artwork and dedication to chart-topping music, Inish Turk Beg is a foodie and cultural haven.

The exhibition runs until 29 March, at Monstertruck Gallery, 4 Temple Bar, Dublin.
