This image is taken from the painting made to produce the series of slides in Do You Know What You Saw? The series is based on a journey to Bayreuth in Germany as a student to see Parsifal by Richard Wagner. The swans represented were seen on Lake Lucerne in Switzerland, near to the house where Wagner lived from 1866 to 1872.
Andrew Vickery now lives and works in Berlin. Vickery paints from memories of specific experiences and events to consider recurring themes of culture, nature, travel and human relationships. His deceptively simple paintings, shown as slides within miniature theatre constructions, create partial narratives which invite the viewer to become a protagonist in the work. Vickery has exhibited widely in Ireland, including solo exhibitions at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin in 2004 and 2013.
