This exhibition comprises five multi-sensory, large-scale paintings on canvas inspired by the barren, raw landscapes of Northern Ireland and Iceland, and offers a unique experience for all audiences through sound, touch and sight.
'Through sound, paint and natural materials such as fish leather, I have created pieces which aim to evoke a holistic feeling of place,' says artist Maurice Orr. 'Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to touch the surfaces, look at the landscapes and listen to the sounds that inspired me to make each of the pieces.'
Northern Irish artist Maurice Orr studied at Belfast College of Art and Design and worked as a graphic artist for the Northern Ireland Civil Service before turning to oil painting. His work offers audiences direct contact with the visual arts and, in particular, provides visually impaired visitors a unique and inspiring arts experience.
This exhibition includes a recorded audio description of the piece for blind and visually impaired visitors, alongside a description in Braille.
