The Men of Great Blasket - “Pulling together”. Original acryclic & mixed media painting on 40x60cm canvas by Irish artist Kelly Hood. Proudly produced in Wicklow, Ireland.
The Men of the Blasket Islands used to carry their traditional fishing boats, known as Curraghs, to the sea everyday, to bring home the catch of the day, in order to sustain their community. They also wore the traditional Aran sweater woven with celtic knotwork, which represented prayers to keep them safe at sea.
Painted in Acrylic and Mixed Media (Clogher Strand Sand, Mother of pearl crushed, Clogher Strand Shells, Native Carragheen seaweed, Gold & Copper Leaf flakes, Mica flakes. Natural white Box Canvas made of 100% pure cotton with a perceptibly fine linen structure and a matte-white coating. This linen is acid free and 100% linen which means it will not fade or yellow and will stand the test of time. For added protection I spray all of my works with UV absorbing fixative also.
