Greystones Harbour – Sea-fog Surprise
“Before even arriving there I had the Greystones Harbour composition all worked out in my mind’s eye, which is usually a recipe for disaster. I was going to look north-east and frame a distant Dalkey Island and Howth Head through the entrance of the harbour wall. A major sea-fog soon put paid to that compositional idea by reducing visibility to just a mile or two. Embracing the flexible plein air philosophy I decided to work with what I could see. I strapped the camera to my head and went to work…” – Rod Coyne.
Greystones Harbour – Video Painting
“The whole painting-video thing was absolutely new to me at this stage and I needed to experiment with various elements of filming. I had modified an old headlamp as a mount for the camera usually designed for a helmet. I had to use a lady’s make up mirror to judge best angle to position the camera at so as to film my painting and not the sky or the ground. It worked…mostly.” – Rod Coyne.
Greystones Harbour – Nomination Text
“When I think of my place I feel… reminiscent. The controversial new harbour construction was an extremely difficult civil engineering undertaking. To appreciate the scale of the development you have to look below the waterline. The biggest single challenge of all was the power of the sea. A winter storm tossed the fifty ton blocks around like confetti. The project seemed to be sunk. We recovered momentum only to be hit again one year later…Now the new Harbour is already beginning to bring benefits to the town and in time, I believe it will truly come into its own. I am happy that we managed to build such a complicated marine structure in a safe manner. Great credit is due to the workers, in particular,
the divers, who endured all weather conditions.” – Brian, Bray Co. Wicklow.
