"A Stream Through Sand"
T.P. Flanagan developed a close friendship with the poet Seamus Heaney and the two men – the poet and the painter – took inspiration from each other. They and their families often holidayed together near Gortahork in Co Donegal. Their artistic discussions lead to the series of ‘Stream through Sand’ and ‘Gortahork’ paintings, demonstrating a new energy and visual language. The works established T.P. Flanagan’s reputation as a lyrical interpreter of the landscape; his works communicating a poetic and literary quality.
