Light in the Dark

By Daire Lynch


You've had a terrible day at work/unemployment office/aimlessly walking the streets after a bad event in your life- you go home, put on your favourite musician/band -it calms you, helps you unwind,gives you solace.

This is the light in the dark.

The same musicians give blood sweat and tears to create that music, often sacrificing friends, family and monetary stability in the process. It being an integral part of your life, you being a fan and supporter is the light in the dark for them.

The light in the dark is also how I light my subjects for my paintings, a solitary downward light, resulting in strong features and contrasts.

I hope to create a series of 15 - 20 paintings, with an exhibit the end result, of both irish and international musicians,musicians who enhance your life with their words, with their musical talents.

I'm looking for your support for the raw materials for this project, as each painting can cost me up to €100 in canvas, paint, brushes, that's not accounting for time put in- up to 90hours per painting.

I already have some well known musicans onboard for the project and as more join, I shall keep you updated with the artists named, work in progress shots of paintings and such.

Painting is my life. I hope to share that with you.
thank you for reading.

Funded! let work commence

Thank you all for helping with this project. Tonight I begin the first of the paintings. The musician - Scroobius Pip. He was a gent and we shot painting images while he was over in Dublin with Dan le Sac doing a tour in support of their excellent new album - Repent, Replenish, Repeat http://www.lesacvspip.co.uk/ I'm excited.

a work in progress (aren't we all)

Just thought I'd give you all a glimpse of a work in progress, not for this series, but for an upcoming exhibition- to show you my work. http://twitpic.com/dajq6l/full

T E Morris

Firstly, thank you to all that have funded it so far, response has been great. I've decided not to name all the musicians that are so far lined up to work with me on this project, in case schedules collide and it's another year before we can cross paths, but I shall name a couple as I go along. One of the first I have the joy to say I shall be painting is T E Morris. He is an incredibly talented musician and vocalist from the Uk, I stumbled upon his work in his other guise as the frontman for Her Name Is Calla. Please give a listen to both musical paths. http://temorris.co.uk/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LScTjL2uZWY http://hernameiscalla.com/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVPyjrKOeyk
