The Pattern Exchange, Temple Bar, Dublin, 2015

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin, 06 February – 28 March 2015, Paul Bokslag, Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln, Fiona McDonald, Studio Weave

The Pattern Exchange is an exhibition, guest curated by Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns, which presents existing work from Irish artists Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln and Fiona McDonald, with new commissions by Paul Bokslag (IE/NL) and architecture practice Studio Weave (UK). Taking pattern as a point of departure, the exhibition explores patterns of knowledge, material production, labour, and patterns of movement and change within urban and natural landscapes.

I have installed a large scale paper cut for The Pattern Exchange and also developed the display font for this exhibition. The Pattern Exchange font can be downloaded for free from the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios website.

Waking Up in Waterford Poster

I will exhibit a number of paper-cuts in Waterford Regional Hospital as part of the exhibitions programme curated by Waterford Healing Arts Trust. The title of the exhibition, Waking Up in Waterford, refers to my hospital admission after a traumatic accident many years ago. Through a series of more figurative paper-cuts I have tried to revisited my stay as a patient in the hospital and the visual narrative that runs through the exhibition follows a journey towards recovery.

Waking Up In Waterford will run from Thursday 10th April, 2014 until the 6th June, 2014. For further information please contact the Waterford Healing Arts Trust on 051-842664 or e-mail WHAT@hse.ie

Hospice Issoria Logo

Hospice Issoria Logo

About fifteen years ago I designed a logo for an initiative group wanting to start a hospice in Leiden, the Netherlands. Now, celebrating its tenth birthday, Hospice Issoria moves to a bigger home at Burggravenlaan 11.  I am delighted that as part of this I was asked to exhibit a number of papercuts. The exhibition can be viewed during the Open Day on Saturday 21st September from 11.00 – 16.00.
