Black Herds Of The Rain

Black Herds Of The Rain “is a film documenting Conor Harrington’s trip home to Ireland in the summer of 2011 to paint 3 walls. The journey and subsequent paintings are inspired by Austin Clarke’s poem The Lost Heifer”. I’ve seen this video linked up on so many of my favourite websites but didn’t get around to watching it. You see, although I love Conor’s earlier work, his more recent militaria paintings didn’t really connect with me (although I’ve continued to admire his style) and I assumed that this was more of the same. I’m happy to report that I’m digging these new murals and it’s always great to watch him paint.
