Lockdown Escapism at Baile na Cille church.
A Message from the Curator
As we are now slowly emerging from lockdown and travel distancing are being eased, I'm delighted to once again be able to bring a small group of artists together and present this collection of artworks at Baile na Cille.
With stunning charcoal and graphite drawings from Margaret Uttley, aqueous abstractions from David Knight, my own gneiss work and the introduction of guest sculptor Marianne Broch's beautiful 'Core'.
A sense of progression and escape is suggested from the devastating effects of COVID-19. Not quite a living form itself, but acting as a continuous reminder of how our life on this planet hangs by a thread, how isolation affects us all stranding us on our own islands, a time for contemplating the future and considering optimismtic actions over planetary issues as we emerge and escape from difficult times. Let us not let this happen again!
