In the Frame: Art at Mason Hayes & Curran
06 March 2017
We are fortunate to have one of the most important corporate art collections of Irish and International contemporary art in Dublin. Included in the collection is ‘Port and Estuary’ by Mike Fitzharris.
Frank O’Flynn, Corporate Partner, has chosen this piece as his favourite from our collection and he explains why: “I am very taken in by Mike’s work. This painting is of Dublin Port and Estuary and while an abstract composition he clearly captures the movement and activity of the port through the hue of colour and tones and what he terms his “threequarter view” whereby objects on the landscape can be seen from the side and above at the same time. It’s great to see his work on this scale. The painting is appropriately hanging in our boardroom by the window overlooking Grand Canal Docks.”
Support of the visual arts is a large part of our CSR strategy and we are a long-time supporter of “Business to Arts”, whose aim is to broker, enable and support creative partnerships between business and the arts.
We are also proud to sponsor the Royal Hibernian Academy’s (RHA) art education programme, which works with three schools in our local Ringsend area and allows children to learn about and interact with art.
