The inspiration behind Brittas Bay Wicklow
‘Mayim’ the Hebrew name for water.
My ‘Mayim’ exhibition was a virtual exhibition that consisted of a live stream while I sat in formal attire in front of my laptop talking my audience through the various paintings. Lockdown and coronavirus meant that even the artists had to adapt!
My love of the water is what really inspired these paintings and exhibition. Water and waves at the beach, water in the lakes and waterfalls in the North and South of Ireland. I trust that you enjoy the brush or palette marks of each scene.
Mayim prices starting from £159
About Brittas Bay Wicklow
Arklow Wicklow and places between were landing sites for Christian missionaries. They set sail for Wicklow where they received a kinder reception and the injured monk known as Manntain or the toothless one built a church. A group of the clergy was already established in Three Mile Water, just north of Brittas Bay, where the ruins of a church still exist. Wicklow, Arklow, Kilcoole and Greystones were subject to Viking invasions from which settlements were established.
A path from the beach (no longer accessible) leads to Dunganstown Castle which was alternatively the home of the Dungan family, the Knights Hospitaller who were Crusaders and the O’Byrne Clan. A descendant of the O’Byrne’s, the late J.T.O’Byrne, County Engineer for Wicklow, told me many years ago that there were rumours of a tunnel from the castle to Jacks Hole.
Harsh custom and excise laws encouraged smuggling activity during the 18th century. A noted pirate, Captain Jack White operated from the Brittas Bay area. He distributed his booty at a coaching inn on the main Dublin Wexford road known as Jack Whites Inn which is also reputed to be the meeting place of another disreputable motley crew known as the Brittas Bay Coastcare Group.
