While making ‘The Idea of an Island’, I became familiar with the work of late Mayo musician Conor Walsh. His work is splendid. Sadly his album The Lucid was only released post-humorously – following Conor’s sudden death. I listened to The Lucid a lot while making this collection and called this painting after Conor to some how honor his contribution.
The Irish Times review described the album as “a victory for his music and a partial triumph over death itself”. I’d strongly recommend a listen to it HERE. I have included the track on a Spotify playlist of music I listened to while making this collection in solitude. You can hear the full playlist HERE.
