The Spell Sundered 2: Photography & Poetry Exhibition
Date: May 3rd- May 30th
Place: St. Peter's Cork, North Main Street
We are delighted to welcome back J Michael Tynan for his second exhibition here in St. Peter’s Cork. For the month of May, John’s latest photography and poetry exhibition ‘The Spell Sundered 2’ will be displayed in our Mezzanine Gallery.
Join us for the official exhibition launch on Thursday May 3rd from 6-8pm, with doors open at 5.30pm. This is a wonderful chance to view the exhibition and meet the artist himself! Expect lively conversation, refreshments and uplifting images and poetry from an artist who is inspired by the sights of everyday beauty of his surroundings.
With summer fast approaching, this is a beautiful merging of poetic words and nature photography which captures the fleeting hidden beauty in the everyday. Enjoy this uplifting and thought-provoking work throughout May.
Familiarity and the drive to distraction mean that often the grandeur and incredible delight of earth’s creation is lost on us. Those surroundings are in the here and now, but are overtly obvious, disguised, or fleeting. Often, all it takes is time… to see. I do not profess to be special in being an interpreter in visual and verse of our surroundings, but I do convey a particular insight, one seen through my eyes. It is my wish that it opens the eyes of you, the viewer, to time and place. In essence, my visual interpretation brings the natural world into perspective and my verse enhances it to espouse my experience.
About the artist:
J Michael Tynan was born and reared in Cork and he is no different from any of the natives as seeing it as the centre of the universe. If you’ve experienced Cork, you’ll know this point is not open to
John is a sub-editor/journalist with the Irish Examiner, where he has worked for 39 years. If he has an ethos it is to be generous of spirit and to seek out the interesting in all people. Generosity is not always reciprocated, but that’s not the point. He has a view that almost all experience is good, including those that are ‘bad’. All are merely part of the tapestry of a full and interesting life. He hopes, firstly, that you appreciate his creativity and, secondly, discover a feeling in it.
The Spell Sundered 2 runs until the 30th May in our Mezzanine Gallery at St. Peter’s Cork.
