‘…of paintings and drawings exploring layered narratives, using masterpieces of Western art and the Coen Brother’s film The Big Lebowski as a starting point.’
Now that’s an artist’s statement.
Above: paintings based on The Incredulity of St Thomas (Caravaggio, 1602) (1,2); Wanderer Above the Sea Of Fog (Caspar David Friedrich, 1818); Supper at Emmaus (Caravaggio, 1601); Oath of The Horatii (Jacques-Louis David, 1784); The Lamentation (Peter Paul Rubens, 1614) and Portrait of Pablo de Valladolid (Diego Velázquez, 1637).
We’re very excited to have the director, Jolynn Minnaar, attending the DCU screening of Unearthed this Thursday as part of the 8×8 Festival.
Jolynn has had quite a few successes this year on the foot of her award-winning documentary.
There are still some [free] tickets available for the DCU event if people were interested in attending.
Jolynn will also partake in a post-screening Q&A in UCC next Tuesday, and a few other screenings around the country (Carrick on Shannon on Friday, Belfast on Saturday, Fermanagh on Sunday, Sligo on Monday).
