Basement Project Space, Camden Quay, Cork, Ireland
21st July – 30th July 2011
This exhibition came about as a result of the rapport between myself and fellow artists Maureen Considine and Annette Persson. Each of us has an affinity for working intuitively and have shared with one another our diverse experiences of pain: physical, emotional and social. We planned to have a group exhibition with each of us tackling the subject of ‘pain’ thematically. I focused on the emotional and psychological aspects. Annette responded to the social pain one experiences as ‘the other’ or an outsider in society and Maureen as a chronic pain sufferer, endeavoured to represent the physical aspects. These varied and interlinked themes formed the basis of the content of the show and the works include: drawings, mixed media paintings, photography, video and installation.
