Pauline Bewick: Yellow Man, Grey Man

Director: Maurice Galway

In Pauline Bewick: Yellow Man, Grey Man, artist Maurice Galway examines the hugely successful series of work by Pauline known as The Yellow Man. “I was searching for the perfect society. That’s why I went to the South Pacific and that’s why I invented The Yellow Man. He, to me, is perfection. I created The Yellow Man because if our society were made up of Yellow Men it would be a marvellous place,” Pauline Bewick. However, in the course of their long friendship, Maurice discovered the existence of her Grey Man, drawings dealing with a much darker side of the artist and much less well-known. Filmed in a series of pellucid Kerry locations, this handsome film captures the charm and energy of one of Ireland’s finest artists on her home ground.
