With Moyra Donaldsonand Paddy Lennon
Chair: Dr. Paul Perry
Sunday 18 November
Venue: RDS Library, Ballsbridge
When poet Moyra Donaldson viewed the work of artist Paddy Lennon she was immediately inspired. Her response to his work encouraged her to produce a creative collaboration. The fact that horses played an integral part of both artists’ lives is evident in their work. Poet and painter have together created Blood Horses (Caesura Press), a creative and moving dialogue between poem and painting.
Through their words and images these two artists tell the stories of three famous stallions – The Byerly Turk, The Darley Arabian and The Godolphin Barb – the founding fathers of the thoroughbred horse as we know it today. Blood Horses, both exhibition and beautiful limited-edition book, looks at the relationship between humans and horses, the effect they have on our lives and our love for these magnificent creatures.
