Sunken Treasures of the Bog
I recently had the pleasure of shooting a profile of my good friend and wood sculptor extraordinaire, Brian O'Loughlin. In which he discusses how over the last 30 years that he's been extracting and re-purposing the sunken bog oak that is to be found all over the Bog Of Allen, near where Brian lives. A fascinating look into a fascinating material being transformed into incredible unique pieces of utterly idiosyncratic art.
An incredible material steeped in a fascinating history. When filtered through Brian's thought provoking creations, it really evokes a sense of sense of ancient wonder.
And you have an opportunity over the next 3 days to catch Brian and his work in the Art Source exhibition currently taking place in the RDS in Dublin.
