Prudence and the Game of Golf

Abigail O'Brien RHA

17 Nov, 2017 - 20 Dec, 2017
Prudence and the Game of Golf is a new suite of works by artist Abigail O’Brien RHA. The third exploration of The Natural Virtues to which Temperance, 2009 and Fortitude, 2005 contributed the opening chapters; Prudence, Justice, Temperance, and Fortitude. These are the hinges on which moral virtues were said to depend; “they govern our actions, order our passions, and guide our con- duct according to faith and reason”. The virtues can be achieved through human effort – they are therefore valid, attainable and worthy.

“Sport is uniquely human. It is civilised war, an accept- able arena to bare one’s teeth.” Grayson Perry, The Descent of Man.

This new series, Prudence and the Game of Golf, combines photography and sculpture into a moulded environment exploring themes that transcend an eighteen-hole game of golf.
