This is entitled 'Aontaithe Eire (Irish for United Ireland #10 1916-2016)' and is one off artwork part of a collection of original, one off Monoprints Sketches on A4 Paper. This work is Green and part of the Earth Element, see below.
This is collection of one-off unique Monoprints. The Artist is exploring Colours. Inspiration for the Colours have been taken from the Colours of 'Lego' Building Block, as either Single Colour Monoprints, Primary Colours of Blue, Red, Yellow or Duo-Colours made up by mixing two Primary Colours together to form a new colour of Orange (made from Yellow & Red), Green (made from Yellow & Blue) etc.
Secondly, the Artist is exploring these Colours by relating these to Four Elements, (Fire, Water, Earth & Air), and a Fifth Element (yet unknown, TBC). Such that Fire, relates to the Sun, Water relates to Sea (Refugees at Sea, Survivors of the Titanic), Earth relates to Aerial View of the Landscape (Green Landscape of Eire, Ireland, Aboriginal Umber etc), Air relates to Sky, Universe, Aircraft etc, inspired by film 'The Fifth Element' (1997)
Monoprints ('Lego' Bricks) are to combined to form a new Larger Work, (i.e 'Wall' made up of 'Bricks'), has been inspired by Henry Matisse work 'The Snail'.
This is piece of Conceptual Art. It is to form a series of unique but repetitive works, each individually numbered (by crossed out, this is #10, other numbers available, hand made to order). This has been inspired by the St.Partick's Day on the 17th March and the forcoming Easter Rising on the 100th anniversary in April 2016 of the Irish uprising against the rule of British Empire in Eire (Ireland). It is to represent a simplified aerial map of the Republic of Ireland, and the Northern Ireland, and they maybe reunited in the future, a land without borders, one-day (aka forming United Ireland in symbolic Peace colour of Green). The Colour has been inspired by the Irish Flag and symbol of Ireland the Shamrock, he has made the Colour Yellow-Green.
