Skate boarding as an Art Practice (Ep. No25)
Drydan Wilson returned to Belfast School of Art to Study his for his master’s degree after graduating in 2016 from BA Fine Art. In 2017 he was the returning artist in residence. Drydan has taken part in several residencies, both virtually and physically, including one on the Copeland Bird Observatory and is a member of the Copeland Arts Collective. From 2014 to 2015 Drydan worked, studied and lived in Finland, developing his practice and exhibiting his work. Drydan has created several commissioned public artworks, some located in Cork, Dublin and Rostrevor to name a few. He has also shown work in numerous group and solo exhibitions both locally and internationally. My practice examines how we negotiate space, exploring the politics of space through questions raised by skateboarding and similar subcultural practices. I am interested in the social distortion created through the re-appropriation of landscape and its architecture and how the positioning or use of the body in space can be used to critique social, capitalist and regulatory structures. Combining my artistic and skateboarding practices I am interested in questioning and challenging the boundaries of what a contemporary art practice can be. I take a multi-disciplinary approach, employing sculpture, text, sound, drawing and video as ways of developing work. Skateboarding from a young age, I naturally use the medium to explore, interact, and think about the world, therefore skateboarding has become the starting point, methodology, and/or subject for much of my work. Whether, using materials and forms that reflect skateboarding terrain, replicating camera angles from skate videos, or incorporating skate terminology as text within the work, I aim to make work through isolating and combining various fragments of the subculture to highlight the creative potential, artistic formalities, and affordances of the material to create artworks that evoke a new way of looking and thinking about space and its potential.

Highlights and challenges of showing art virtually with Lauren Ciara McCullough (Ep.24)
This week Oonagh speaks with Lauren Ciara McCullough about some of the highlights and challenges of having a virtual art show having recently taken part in the second part of the E-Quadrant show.  We also get to hear about how lockdown has affected Lauren’s work and process as a painter as she settles into her new home. Lauren Ciara McCullough is recent graduate of the BA Course in Fine art at Ulster University, attaining a First-Class Honours. Her practice focuses centrally on painting; however, it stems into areas such as drawing, poetry, collage, photography and most recently walking. The sublime is the central motif of McCullough’s practice. A practice of questioning whether it is possible to convey something beyond self and the earthly reality, through image and paint? As an emerging artist McCullough has shown in multiple group exhibitions since her graduation in 2019 and has gone on to pursue an associate fellowship in Higher Education alongside her Masters. McAteer and Zara Lyness, Buoy Park Art is a podcast full of chat about art and artists in Northern Ireland and beyond. Meeting on the Fine Art Master’s Course in Ulster University, Oonagh (BA Photography) and Zara (BA Fine Art) started the podcast as a relaxed platform to encourage inclusive discussions about art and artists and to extend a support network to independent and rural artists at all career stages. The podcasts include invited guests talking about their work and interests and introducing different topics each week, along with the ups and downs of the life or an emerging artist.

Featuring Susan Hughes and Charys Wilson (Episode No.14)
Charys Wilson "I have always had a fascination with the overlooked, underappreciated, seemingly banal aspects of nature. Fleeting moments that are often missed, namely those which involve sunlight. I have been intrigued with making works based on the phenomenon of perception, how people perceive their surroundings, what they consider to be worthy or not worthy of their time/appreciation. We all see the same things, but our associations and outlook affect how we perceive them, I want to share my own personal perception. I work mainly in drawing, but also create 3D natural light boxes. I am becoming more interested in installation, aiming to create an for the viewer experience." Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/charyscw/  ( CharysCW-Art ) website - https://charyscw.wixsite.com/charyswilson Mystery tour link - https://susanhughesartist.wordpress.com/2020/11/22/mystery-tours/ As the daughter of an ardent birdwatcher, I have gravitated to coastal regions, islands and bird sanctuaries. My attraction to the cultural heritage of coastal areas – which includes an interest in regional folklore and traditions, particularly fiddle music which I use as a tool to access and build relationships– is entwined with my desire to be confronted by the sea. Experiencing direct immersion through swimming pushes me to engage with the sea as a living, breathing space. By stepping off the land and into this other world, I have freedom to mourn and keen, or let my heart race with joy. This is what I take back to my studio.

Featuring Jayne Cherry (Episode No.14)
Jayne Cherry Performance, drawing, sculpture, textiles and curation are the result of Cherry examining and deconstructing her past experiences. Responding to where she has found herself to be from birth, comfort and reassurance replaced with paralysing distress and bewilderment has provided oceans of memory to be navigated through. Had the choice been hers, she would have remained longer in some places and never visited others. Subjects such as fear, abuse and loneliness are what she now has given herself permission to represent in her work in the hope that this will leave clues for the viewer. https://jaynecherry.co.uk/ Oonagh McAteer and Zara Lyness, Buoy Park Art is a podcast full of chat about art and artists in Northern Ireland and beyond.

Featuring Nollaig Molloy and Sinéad O'Neill-Nicholl (Episode No.5)
Welcome to the Buoy Park Art podcast with Oonagh McAteer and Zara Lyness. Buoy Park Art is our virtual place, named after the vanished public art sculpture park situated beside the Belfast School of Art where we used to meet and chat. We invite you to our new park to share in conversations about art and artists in Northern Ireland and beyond. On this weeks podcast Zara and Oonagh talk to Nollaig Molloy and Sinéad O'Neill-Nicholl about their work and exhibition at The MAC Belfast. Nollaig Molloy's work explores materials from specific sites and their relevance in historical, social and industrial situations. She works collaboratively using video, animation, sculptural installation and event based outcomes. Using traditional and craft based techniques, she engages with 'materials-to-hand' placing them within contemporary contexts. Through modes of in-depth research she works with formal and informal archives, environments and communities-of-interest. In 2020 she was awarded the Individual Artist Bursary from Roscommon County Council and in 2018 she received an Emerging Artist Award from Fingal County Council’s public art project ‘Infrastructure’, yet to be realized. www.nollaigmolloy.comMusic to credit ‘Joshua Findon Magee’ "Sinéad O'Neill-Nicholl is a multi-disciplinary artist using a range of new media to create audio installations and who engages in live art performance to explore contemporary themes of gender, identity, truth and justice.  Examining the power structures at play within language and the methods used to silence the voice of the 'other', Sinéad's recent practice involves the creation of spatial audio environments using the agency of sound as a method of resistance. Working at the intersection of contemporary fine art and technology, Sinead is a current member of Vault Artist Studios having received the 2020 University of Atypical Graduate Award and 2019 Arts Council NI SIAP award." http://www.sineadonart.com www.vimeo/sineadonart Insta - @sineadonart Any comments or suggestions can be emailed to buoyparkart@gmail.com Instagram @oonaghmcateer @z.lyness @buoyparkart #BPA #Boyparkartpodcast #soundart #soundandresistance #feministart
