Overflow by Linda Brunker [Corner Barrow Street/Upper Grand Canal Street]
The location is a bit bleak and the large flower-pots [planters] don’t help.
This sculpture was commissioned by Cosgrave Homes, who wanted a suitable piece for the entrance of their Pembroke Square complex. The 8 foot plus tall female figure is caste in bronze strips and was inspired by Patrick Kavanagh’s canal bank walk.
Linda Brunker was born in Dublin, Ireland. She studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and received a degree in Fine Art.
Her bronze sculptures have been exhibited in Ireland and abroad and are included in several private and corporate collections.
