‘Making and mending my way through – a dialogue about mental health’
Solo-exhibition in the town hall in Macroom – July 2019
Solo-exhibition at the Vilnius Art Academy, Lithuania – October 2019
The primary element in this work is mulberry paper.
Delicate yet tough, vulnerable yet resilient, transparent as well as opaque, the exploration of this material’s fragility and strength are a constant reminder of the same characteristics within myself while the processes of tearing, cutting, burning, bleaching, mending and sewing visually convey feelings, thoughts and emotions.
The exhibition was opened by Pamela Hardesty, Lecturer in Fine and Applied Art at the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design and visual artist with an international exhibition practice and public commissions throughout Ireland.
