Speaking of which .... is a new series of short films with eleven contemporary Irish artists who are both established and emerging in their careers led by The Dock in Carrick on Shannon in collaboration with The LAB Gallery in Dublin. This new series of short filmed interviews with Irish artists was developed to be used in an educational setting by teachers and arts organisations.
In this video artist Eve talks about the benefits of her studio space in Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, how she makes her own paints, thow she creates the surfaces for her paintings and how she colour, light and even the time of day can affect the work that she makes.
The inspiration for these online films comes from the desire to create an opportunity for young people to engage with visual arts culture and to give them a unique insight into arts practices, methods and motivations through the words of practicing artists. The series also provides an opportunity for artists to communicate with a young audience. The artists involved are emerging artists at the beginning of their careers and more established artists taking risks in their practice.
These videos are ideal for use in an educational setting by teachers and arts organizations, and a fascinating opportunity to hear and learn more about the art making process. If you are interested in using them in your learning please contact us for a full resource document. Email Laura Mahon, Visual Arts & Education Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org
