Michael Bulfin Exhibition

Irish artist Michael Bulfin has more than earned his stripes as an artist and member of Aosdána; from his pioneering sculptures in the 1970’s (such as Bank of Ireland, Baggot St) to the setting up the Project Arts Centre in Dublin, representing Ireland internationally

1st December at 7:00 pm to 19th December 2014 at 4:00 pm

and steering the Sculpture Society of Ireland (predecessor of Visual Artists Ireland). His impressive list of important artistic and cultural achievements have played in role in defining the artistic language and landscape of Irish Art today.

His home county of Offaly often draws him back, (locally his artistic renown is predominately his sculpture Sky Train at Lough Boora Discovery Park) and on Monday 1st December he opens a new solo exhibition of paintings in Áras an Chontae in Tullamore. Entitled A View from Above, this is a collection of new work inspired by views of a landscape from a plane. “Over many years I have travelled to and from India, Kenya, Nigeria and Lesotho, in Southern Africa” he says, “and I am an avid ‘looker out of plane windows’ always fascinated by the landscape below.”

A captivating distraction shared by many on long haul flights, these paintings of far flung places will seem very familiar. In these landscape paintings, there is no horizon and no sky! Bulfin takes into account the starkness of sunlight on the landscape, but also evening light at dusk when the landscape becomes more subtle and nuanced as the colours darken and fade into night.

The exhibition will be opened by fellow artist Michael Burke, on Monday December 1st at 7pm and will continue until Dec 19th. Further information about the exhibition can be obtained from the artist on derrinlough@yahoo.co.uk or from arts@offalycoco.ie and 057 9357400
