I DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT THAT THIS ‘BLIND FIDDLER’ WAS BY BOB QUINN

    I DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT THAT THIS ‘BLIND FIDDLER’ WAS BY BOB QUINN [CITY WEST BUSINESS PARK DUBLIN]

    Today I used a 28-135mm F4 Cine Lens hoping that I might get a different feel for this sculpture in Citywest. When I started my journey the weather was beautiful and sunny but by the time I took this photograph the sky was an ugly grey and it was beginning to rain. Nevertheless, I like this sculpture and I do hope that you also like it.

    Originally I was lead to believe that this sculpture was by a Welsh artist and at the time I could not find any information relating to this sculpture so I assumed that my information was correct … all I needed to do was establish the name of the artist from Wales.

    One day I happened to visit Bob Quinn’s website and by accident discovered that the Blind Fiddler is his work which explained why I failed to discover the name of the Welsh artist.

    The sculpture of the “Blind Fiddler” is impressionistic. He plays a happy tune, his broken layers of clothes represents leaves, his arched back, the wind shaped tree and his slight frame allows him the lightness to “dance a jig on a cobweb”. The natural patination of the bronze is not fixed with wax and so its colours will evolve organically with time and with the seasons.
