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
