talos - Tethered Bones -  feel good lost - surface and surfaceI saw this over on Nialler9 last week and I’ve had it on repeat all weekend. So early but I doubt anything else will beat this for song of the year. It’s by a Cork based Irish musician who goes by the moniker of Talos and accompanied by yet another emotionally charged video from Feel Good Lost, who have been mentioned a few times on Surface & Surface before namely the recent video for Hozier, Take me to the Church. Tethered Bones is the only song I could find by Talos so far but really looking forward to what comes next. You can watch the video or just listen to the song on the soundcloud link below.

Conor Harrington Belfast - surface and surfaceNew work from Irish Artist Conor Harrington.  These 3 paintings were done in conjunction with the 13th Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

“In a way, I’ve always thought Belfast was the last place I could paint. They have such a strong tradition of sectarian murals depicting political and historical scenes from both an Irish Nationalist and British Loyalist agenda and although my work has vastly different intentions, my imagery could be perceived as being closer to 1 side of that political divide.”

You can find more info on the 13th Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival here.  Plenty more amazing work from Conor Harrington on his blog here or on our previous post here.

07 Conor Harrington Lazarides Gallery - surface and surfaceNew work from Cork born – London based Artist Conor Harrington for his solo exhibition ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides Gallery, London.  Full press release available here.

“Harrington’s choice of materials—oil on canvas paired with spray paint—highlights the establishment and its downfall, a consistent theme from his previous work. His scenes so carefully constructed and beautifully rendered, Harrington thinks nothing of brandishing a can of bitumen black spray paint and vandalizing his own careful creation. The dialogue between graffiti and traditional fine art, abstraction and realism form the backbone of his continuing output.”

Conor’s solo exhibition includes 8 large scale paintings and 24 small studies.  ‘Dead Meat’ runs until the 2nd of April 2012.  Watch the video below by Andrew Telling‘Black Herds of The Rain’ it 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.  Conor Harrington will be taking part in Offset in Dublin this weekend, he’ll be presenting his work on Sunday at 4pm.
