Overview

“We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realise the truth, at least the truth that is given to us to understand” (Pablo Picasso). What is “truth” in art? What kind of truth can art tell? How can it do it? An investigation of art through the centuries asking these questions and maybe even suggesting some answers to this all-pervasive subject.

About the Speaker

Ronnie Ireland

www.ronnieirelandart.com

ronnieireland2@gmail.com

Ronnie’s life has always revolved around art and music. He has drawn and painted all his life and made music (mainly singing; from opera through to rock and jazz) during much of it.

He was born and educated in Glasgow, then moved to Edinburgh where he taught art and ran a company, organising and playing music. Ronnie moved to the south of England in 2011, realising he needed a fresh start and new challenges in a new place.

The regular art classes which Ronnie now runs are very important to him. They aim to encourage artists to develop their own ideas and voice, and he finds it exciting and gratifying working with the artists as they progress. He feels it is the most difficult, but also the most rewarding part of art. Ronnie also gives regular talks, demonstrations and workshops on many aspects of art and creativity to art societies, educational institutions and the corporate world.

His own art centres around the idea of identity and how it manifests in many different ways from the theatrical to the everyday.
