St Brigid´s Day!

St Brigid’s Day

The 12 Star Gallery London – January 23rd – February 1st 2019

Hamilton Gallery Sligo – 16th February – 31st March

The iconic early Christian symbol St Brigid has been chosen to serve as a catalyst for 90 invited Irish women artists to create an original painting for this exhibition.

Folk custom, the four seasons, women’s lives and crafts, poetry, all intersect at the 1st of February feast-day of Saint Brigid in Ireland. What is celebrated is the rebirth of the living earth; it was usual in some places to turn a sod of earth with the spade, the work of cultivation beginning again.  Many customs, especially around food and cattle, are connected with the day, but the best known was the making of St Brigid’s crosses out of straw or rushes.

Women’s political journey in the last century of Irish history makes it right to choose the day for special celebration of Irish women artists and the works of art are further held in focus by their relation to the poem “St Brigid’s Day 1989” by Leland Bardwell, which positions the poet as observer, half outside the culture that she watches.

This exhibition is a dynamic and vibrant contemporary response, to the import and changing cultural significance of powerful traditional female symbolism not just in Ireland, but in all contemporary societies.

Organised by Hamilton Gallery, Sligo, Ireland, with the support of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in association with the Irish Embassy to Great Britain as part of the annual St Brigid’s Day events celebrating the creativity of women.

Exhibition tonight in Valencia

 

I am delighted to show tonight in an old favorite, Trentatres Cafe & Galeria in Calle Sueca 33! The opening is from 7pm-10pm and the show will continue on till the end of January!

The work I will be showing is work I have produced this year, where I have been exploring myths and facts of places and animals related to death! I also have been experimenting with new techniques in painting and drawing using oils and charcoal as a medium!

“Around the world, the crow has been associated with war, death, the Otherworld, or as a cunning trickster not to be trusted. Despite this, there has also been a grudging acknowledgement of its intelligence.

In Irish mythology, the crow is seen as a manifestation of the Morrigan (in Irish, Mór-ríoghain), meaning phantom/great Queen. She was a deity signifying ‘battle, strife and sovereignty’, a harbinger of war and death, who spoke of the battlefield as ‘her garden’.

It was said that she would often fly above a battle, her cry bringing courage and encouragement to her warriors, whilst simultaneously striking fear into the hearts of the enemy. Sometimes she would join in the battle in her human form.”

Berlin Calling…

Just got back from my favorite city last week! I went for 2 weeks, work & play!

I have a an artist friend who runs a gallery & shop space in Kreuzberg, Berlin called; “Let it Bleed”! I was invited to participate in a mini residence there during my time!

I loved being able to draw in their space, at the same time look after the shop, and get to chat to all the clients that came in! Here is a few images of the work I managed to do…

 

I was also able to sell my new brand Parallel Project (www.parallelprojectdesign.com) in the shop part, I was delighted by the huge response!! You can still find my brand and some original drawings for sale in Let it Bleed! Thanks everyone that popped in and supported me!
