A collection of paintings on the theme of novelist Cormac McCarthy's former home will be exhibited at Millburn House from the 22nd June.
Peter Josyph, writer, filmmaker and artist, will be exhibiting his paintings of the El Paso, Texas, house to coincide with the Cormac McCarthy Society Conference being hosted by the CAPITAL Centre from 28th June to 2nd July.
The paintings were made in New York in 1997 – 1998 and in 2008 – 2009 on hand-made paper from the DePonte Mill in Mexico. Josyph’s work as painter has made him a fellow of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and a New Yorker Talk of the Town.
Josyph’s books include Liberty Street: Encounters at Ground Zero; What One Man Said to Another: Talks With Richard Selzer; The Wounded River; and two forthcoming books centered around Cormac McCarthy: Adventures in Reading Cormac McCarthy; and Cormac McCarthy’s House. His films include the award-winning documentary Liberty Street: Alive at Ground Zero; and Acting McCarthy: The Making of Billy Bob Thornton’s “All the Pretty Horses”.
The Cormac McCarthy European Conference 2009 will bring together academics from around the globe for a series of papers, workshops and seminars dealing with all aspects of Cormac McCarthy's work, including fiction, criticism, stage and film.
The exhibition runs until the 2nd July.
