Episode 3

ETERNAL BLOOMS, is a four-way partnership with Illustrator and Printmaker Eva Byrne, ICO Leader Katherine Hunka, Guitarist Jimmy Smyth and Film Editor, Dominik Kosicki. Eva’s inspiration for ETERNAL BLOOMS comes from the transience of wildflowers, short-lived when plucked by her daughter Polly. Eva creates this picture in her artwork to encapsulate this moment for always for her daughter. The music stimulus came from the emotive old folksong The Unquiet Grave arranged and performed by Violinist Katherine Hunka and Guitarist Jimmy Smyth. The imagery is simple, and the melody resembles a lullaby, creating the impression of a natural cycle, every-present and compelling. The beautiful ETERNAL BLOOMS broadcasts on Thursday 29 April.
