SAURIAN A RED DRAGON IN LEE FIELDS CORK - BY JIM BUCKLEY

SAURIAN RED DRAGON IN LEE FIELDS CORK BY JIM BUCKLEY

There is a type of metal sculpture that I refer to as “Red Metal Things” and there are many of them throughout Ireland but this one makes more sense than most as it is fairly obvious that it is a dragon. It is known as Saurian and it is by Jim Buckley.

Jim Buckley was born in Cork in 1957, and attended the Crawford School of Art 1975-80,studying sculpture under John Burke. In his early work, he used 'found' steel.

There is a type of metal sculpture that I refer to as “Red Metal Things” and there are many of them throughout Ireland and sometimes the are not identified, lack context or make no sense.

MY MAIN CAMERA

SONY a7RIV

The camera has a full-frame 61MP BSI-CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. Personally I find it to be much better than my A7RIII
