The Forerunner I – selected for Cairde Visual at Sligo Arts Festival
I am delighted that my painting The Forerunner I (Pigeon Drone) has been selected for the Cairde Visual at Sligo Arts Festival which will run at Hyde Bridge Gallery from 7th July until 25th July 2015. This open submission exhibition is selected by Megan Johnston, Director of The Model and Mark Garry, Visual Artist.
This painting looks at the use of drones in surveillance and mechanised unmanned warfare including micro-aviary – the development of tiny surveillance drones used in warfare, modelled on birds and flight patterns in nature. The Forerunner I, (Pigeon Drone) is based on the pigeon cameras used for aerial photography in 1907 by Julius Neubronner.
