Cormac Boydell at the Grainstore
We are delighted that Cormac Boydell has produced a new range of work centred on the theme of food and wine especially for display at the Grainstore in Ballymaloe throughout Litfest.
Some of Cormac’s pieces take their inspiration from the illustrations in early editions of Mrs Beeton’s cook books and also from the style of fluid illustrations in Ortega’s “1080 Recipes”. Others refer to Van Gogh and Millet’s paintings of agricultural workers.
In addition to Cormac’s spectacular ceramic pieces, visitors will also see a fantastic one metre long, suspended sculpture of a fish.
Cormac Boydell’s beautiful ceramic work is highly renowned. His background in geology informs his impressive work with colour and glazes. He mixes all of his own colours. There is a ruggedness and energy in his work which reflects where he lives, near Allihies on the remote Beara peninsula.
Cormac’s work is available for sale throughout the festival.
