Michael Mulcahy, Boat on the waves (2010)
Michael Mulcahy is one of Ireland's best known painters, having exhibited regularly since the 1970s. His work is vibrant, full of symbolic markings that reappear over the decades. Verging between abstract expressionist and figurative, often referencing mythic and celestial beings from Irish and other cultures, his work is instantly recognisable.
A small boat (a currach) is tossed and encircled by tumultuous waves. Above it all, is taht someone or something conrolling it all? Vividly coloured, dynamic and powerful.
