What an honour to be showing my vinyl floor and wall drawing alongside large prints of My Carlow, a graphic novel by Studio Weave and an architectural structure by Todo Por La Praxis, as part of Town Planners in the Studio Gallery at VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art. A big thank you to producers Ann Mulrooney of VISUAL in Carlow and to Eilis Lavelle and Rosie Lynch of Workhouse Union for asking me and to Jon for helping with the install.
A big thank you to Kilkenny Arts Office for awarding me a residency bursary for the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. I had an inspriring and productive week in this amazing place in the beginning of December. I am very much looking forward to another week in the new year and hope to show some of the work in a gallery next summer.
Camphill Camino Trek Fundraiser Artsale
Purchase an original and affordable piece of art for on your wall or to give away as a present and contribute towards a good cause.
From 30 September – 7 October 2017 I will take part in the Camphill Camino Trek from Ponferrada to Sarria to help to raise funds in support of the inspiring work that Camphill does around the country. As part of my fundraising efforts I am selling a series of small abstract drawings. All drawings cost €45.00 only and are made using archival and acrylic inks. The price includes a simple IKEA frame or postage to anywhere in the world. 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Camphill fundraiser. The drawings on offer can be viewed on my facebook page, or in person in KCAT.
Drawings can be taken home after purchase. Shipments will take place after the completion of the walk. If you have already made a donation and feel you are missing out on this opportunity, please talk to me and I am sure we can come to an agreement. Contact me if you want to secure a drawing of your choice or if you have any questions.
I am delighted to be showing work and looking forward to giving a monoprinting workshop at Mountshannon Arts Festival.
I am delighted to have two of my pieces in ‘Dog Days‘, this year’s Open Submission Exhibtion at Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise: ‘Oval I’, a papercut and ‘Vessel IV’, a small sculptural piece (PET Bottle and Embroidery Thread). Dog Days was curated by Therry Rudin and Patricia Hurl of Damer House Gallery.
Shaft, the site-specific sisal twine sculpture that I installed in Dublin’s Temple Bar Gallery atrium for Culture Night, will remain in place until Saturday 15 October 2016. TBG+S are included in Open House Dublin 2016 and the installation will be part of their tour. More photos here.
A thank you to Martha Luczak and Kathy Scheuring for asking me to be part of Memovoco 2016, a tear-off calendar filled with inspiring statements about life, with contributions by artists, designers and illustrators from over 25 countries. My papercut memo was inspired by Alan Counihan and Bridge Street Will Be.
