Beyond the Three Perfections

The Office of Public Works (OPW) is hosting the ‘Beyond the Three Perfections’ exhibition at Dublin Castle’s Coach House and it finishes up on Friday, December 8.

The Three Perfections - poetry, painting and calligraphy - have a long and uninterrupted history of cultivation in China. The exhibition explores the artistic evolution that arose from distinguished Irish painter Patrick Scott’s early discovery of Zen philosophy in the mid-1950s in Ireland to that of Irish-American artist Patty Hudak’s ink and wash paintings inspired by President Higgins’ poetry created on her journey through Asia today. The exhibition is concerned with the convergence of art forms, but also the convergence of ideas from East-West.
