Bidding for ‘Pink Swim’ by Carol Healy, auctioned in aid of Marymount Hospice, Cork  will close at 15:00 on Saturday July 6th 2024.

Pink Swim

Nua Collective are excited to present a new collaboration with Marymount Hospice, Cork, creating an opportuntity to raise funds for this incredible organisation. To do this we are auctioning a new work by Nua Collective artist Carol Healy entitled ‘Pink Swim’, a watercolour painting featuring elements of pastel and gold leaf.

‘Pink Swim’ was created during a time when I cared full time for my father who was suffering from a chronic illness. Whenever I could carve out some time for myself, I’d head to the sea, to swim in all weathers, the freezing months of winter to the glorious heat of summer. These swims sustained me through the toughest times seeing my beautiful father going through his final stage of life. The body is an amazing vessel in which we live , the sea felt like a sacred place for my body to be revitalised, to have my cup filled and my inner child could come out to play. ‘Pink Swim’ is about the importance to take care of yourself, have fun, rest, laugh with friends, and bring some colour into your life! So that you can return with your cup overflowing and ready to give again.

About Marymount Hospice

Marymount University Hospital & Hospice, ‘Marymount’, provides specialist palliative care services and services to care for dependent older people.

Marymount need to raise €3 million each year through fundraising initiatives in order to sustain their current level of service provision. That means every cent or Euro you donate makes a real difference to them.

The original hospital was built on the north side of the city but the service relocated in 2011 to purpose-built, modern, high-quality facilities in Curraheen, Cork. Marymount is an independent voluntary hospital with University status and is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. As the specialist palliative care service for Cork city and county, Marymount Hospice serves as a centre for coordinating the delivery of palliative care services across all care settings in Cork. It is also closely allied to the specialist palliative care services in Kerry.

Nua Art Auction Initative

Nua Collective are dedicated to supporting and promoting professionally practising artists. We are consistently looking for innovative ways to collaborate with regional charities to amplify a mutual impact on the community. With this in mind, we are initiating collaborations between Nua Collective and local charities to auction original artworks.

We hope this initiative will raise funds and awareness through a mutually beneficial campaign. The funds raised will be split between the charity (51%) and the artist (49%) ensuring that the artist is fairly compensated for their work, while also contributing to the charity. We are excited about these collaborations to not only raise vital funds but also to create a narrative about the intersection of art and positive social engagement.
