Product Details

Art is Everything, Art is Life by Cormac Baker

Dare to be inspired and strive to create is the challenge set down in this volume by poet and artist, Cormac Baker. Tales of heroism and history combine to demonstrate how art can be found in everything and everything that we live and do can serve as inspiration, thus aiding our efforts to interpret and re-interpret the world anew.

Such views offer fresh insight, alongside new and invigorating ways to look at common and mundane things, drawing inspiration too from those who went before us: folk heroes, such as Robin Hood; luminaries and visionaries, such as Leonardo da Vinci or Nostradamus; forgotten figures and unresolved tragedies of history, such as Richard III of England or the Jack the Ripper victims.

Art teaches us how to live, “sending amateurs and orators a new way to observe.” Keeping art alive shows us how to appreciate the world; it gives us the will to live.

Cormac Baker was born in Wexford and currently resides in Dublin, Ireland. He studied fine art at Sligo Institute of Technology, where he specialised in printmaking. An avid historian, keen artist, lover of nature, his many and varied interests are reflected in his writing, painting, photography, a selection of which has been brought together in this anthology.
