In The Frame: Art at Mason Hayes & Curran - Peter McLay
27 September 2019
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 'The Golfer' by Bartosz Kolata.
Peter McLay, Partner in our Energy & Natural Resources team, has chosen this piece as his favourite from our collection and he explains why: "While the painting depicts what is a reasonably well-known moment in golfing history, its presentation is a far cry from the heroic manner in which the sport is often painted. Through the clever use of scale, composition and negative space, the artist has created a sympathetic image of a golfer facing a significant challenge, but for whom things could have been a lot worse. It's a lot like life! I find myself hoping that he sinks the putt."
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.
