2. Hospital Shop Window Festival
I should really do a separate post on this but I am part of a group organising a festival for Culture Night and beyond showcasing the art of Irish and possibly international artists in the shop windows of Hospital, where I live. Here is the website www.hswf.weebly.com
and here is one of the fabulous images I took for it. I love reflections.
3. A new studio - in Dungarvan
We are moving to the sunny South-East - when we find a house we like. I have already procured a studio space which I am itching to use. I think studios are like a new pair of shoes or nail varnish - you imagine that the work you will create there will be so much better because everything is new. The truth of this remains to be seen but I am determined that this studio will not be cluttered with several projects on the desk at the same time.
4. New Work
I made these collages for Nom Nom Cafe in Kenmare. They are part of a project I am tentatively calling Vogueifications which use images from Vogue fashion shoots. For reasons peculiar to me Vogue fashion images delight and dismay me in equal measure. I think they are the best fashion imagery in the world but the stupid captions they give them winds me up and demeans the models and readers alike. So I attack them with paint, tape or re-draw them, incorporating the offending captions.
