In October 2017, these four artists took up a month’s residence in the Burren College of Art and the village of Ballyvaughan. Akin to the filtering process of the marine barnacle, these four artists filtered through the distinct particles of their new home. As the austere Burren landscape mingled with the warmth of the Ballvaughan village, so proceeded the venturing into the landscape, the trailing of whiskeys, and the capturing of oddities.
This show functions as an invitation to glimpse their individual artistic approaches to creating; from painting, to casting plaster, to darkroom photography. Collectively their artworks offer a paradoxical juxtaposition connected by the nuances of a shared experience of place and time

Ormond Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
