I am delighted to be working currently with two schools. The first one is through the living arts program. I have had two residencies previously within primary schools via this project. This year differs in that I am taking part in an exciting new strand of the project- which is being run in secondary schools on a pilot bases. Through it I am working with Selskar College in Wexford town. I am also half way through a residency with Carrigduff National School in Bunclody. This is through the artist/teacher partnership via Wexford Education Centre. I will post more details of both of these residencies shortly.
Hong Kong & Macau
Very exciting to tell you that I will be travelling to Hong Kong and Macau in March of this year by kind invitation of the Hong Kong and Macau Irish festival, with the support of the festival and of Culture Ireland. I will exhibit my work both in the Anita Chan Lai-ling Gallery in the Fringe Club on Hong Kong island and with Creative Macau. There will be an exciting number of events run along side, including workshops and artist talks. Whilst I am in such a stimulating environment I am going to commence research for a new body of work. I am excited beyond belief to be able to do this as extremes of light have been such a significant part of my practice to date - so what better environment could I wish to visit. This new body of work will be exhibited in a solo show in the new exhibition space in the Hook Lighthouse, Wexford in October/November 2018.
