The Screaming Silence of the Wind

Five large paintings on canvas that you can touch, inspired by the landscapes of Northern Ireland and Iceland.

Artist Maurice Orr’s The Screaming Silence of the Wind comprises five multi-sensory large-scale paintings on canvas inspired by the barren, raw landscapes of Northern Ireland and Iceland. It offers a unique experience for all audiences through sound, touch and sight.

‘Through sound, paint andnatural materials such as fish leather, I have created pieces which aim to evoke aholistic feeling of place,’ saysOrr: ‘Visitors to the exhibitionare encouraged to touch the surfaces, look at the landscapes and listen to thesounds that inspired me to make each of the pieces.’
