A companion piece to 'Verso l'isola di Murano', 'Irlandese con curraghs' uses a precise palate of earthy colours to comment on ideas of tradition and survival linked to landscape.
Both pieces have similarities in theme but they are also preoccupied with captured light. In this piece, the fresh strong green that reflects back the light is particularly important and represents a response to an area with a unique visual identity.
