Inspiring Nature – Magic Colours Of The Wicklow Way, Part One

Good Mornings,

in August 2015 I went to walk the Wicklow Way from Iron Bridge to Dublin with Markus, a friend from Germany. If you start in Iron Bridge you will be walking 5/7 of the entire way.

My wife gave us a lift to Iron Bridge on a Sunday Morning and we started our trip at 10:00 am with light drizzle and a feeling that this is going to be a beautiful and exciting trip.

We were well equipped so the rain didn’t bother us at all. After a very steep beginning through forest we arrived at a hut, which at that time didn’t catch our attention.

At the beginning it wasn’t easy to leave reality behind and become one with the surroundings. But soon nature revealed its ancient face and some amazing colours.

We continued our ascent and reached the top of the first mountain pretty soon.

We took a small detour to explore the regional forest and the boggy landscape before we arrived in the valley of Glenmalure where we stayed for the night.

idir – Group Ego Trip 1

After meeting in Ireland, a group of cross disciplinary artists have joined together to form  the collaboration known as ‘idir.’  With their name taken from the Gaelic word for ‘between’ the group is an exciting collaboration between artists, between cultures, between countries and continents.

The intercultural group features a multitalented group of individuals with a breadth of work in performance, painting, photography, sculpture, visual arts and music.

The diverse group have been invited by New York Foundation For the Arts to tour their work to DUMBO.  The exhibition entitled ‘Group Ego Trip’ will open on October 9 and will continue for four months at the New York location until January 30th 2015.

Group Ego Trip, curated by David C. Terry will be exhibited at 20 Jay Street, 7th Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11201.  Further information on the artists involved in the collective can be found on their website www.idirart.com.
