The phptpgrapher Pat McArdle has a fine exhibition at the City Library, lady Lane, called Elements of the Lydia, an abandoned wooden boat in the Wexford estuary. His eye for shape and detail catches the rusted fittings and bolts and you can still see the pattern of the grain in the bleached, decaying timber with patches of paint still flaking off. The close-up detail catches well the erosion and decay. In one print, the ribs of the boat stand out like sentinels or dolmen standing stones.
Do go and see his work especially his large print CORNFIELD with grey sky, white clouds and wonderfully warm corn fields and circular bales of hay.
