Flock Of Ospreys Looking For The Old Blind Sea Captain Who Dreams Of His Deceased Sea Fellows Under A Visiting African Sun
Dylan Thomas Theatre
Niamh McCann has taken her inspiration from different elements: the background sea/skyscape in her mural is a simplified graphic representation of the James Harris Snr painting ‘Swansea Bay in Stormy Weather’; an African cigarette logo provides the red sun; the over looking ospreys are a Swansea logo and reference and finally, the title, combining all these and intimating the presence of a character from Dylan Thomas’s Under Milkwood.
All these elements (and their back-story) come together to create a landscape, which is both local and disparate within the given landscape of Swansea. Click here to visit Niamh McCann’s website
