Description

Details

'31 thought-provoking pieces in an immaculate anthology ... all have thoughtfully set down their views on how the county nourishes them and its compelling influence on their work.' The Irish Times

Stories. Stories of love and loss. Success and failure. Stories about people and place. Stories about the magical spark of creativity. Life stories that make us feel and that make us think. Stories that are stirring and inspirational.

With a particular emphasis on the role of landscape and environs, The Art of Place consists of 31 captivating personal stories by some of the most creative people in Ireland, who all live in or come from County Clare. Featured contributors include writers and visual artists, musicians and composers, sculptors and craftspeople, photographers and filmmakers. Their compelling and deeply personal stories will resonate not only with people from the West of Ireland, but with people worldwide who are enthralled by the creative process.

Beautifully designed and including 100 specially commissioned photographic interpretations by award-winning photographer John Kelly, The Art of Place is a work of art itself, and a magnificent testament to the artistic spirit for which Ireland is justifiably famous.

‘Placing place goes to the heart of this anthology. In so doing, our intention is … that you enter into the unique soundscapes, smellscapes, touchscapes, tastescapes and sightscapes of County Clare.’ – Liam Ashe, from the Foreword

‘This is what we set out to do in this book. Make things visible to ourselves – and to others. … In this anthology, we are engaged in the act of unmasking inner worlds. Probing the nooks and crannies of our lives. ... Digging for words. Finding words. To tell a story; about ourselves. – Peadar King, from the Introduction
