D W E L L I N G S is a new print exhibition in our Foyer Gallery, by artist Gráinne Bath Enright.
Gráinne’s artwork explores a sense of place and the natural world, urban landscapes and the connections we have to these places, pulling on their history, folklore and the environment.
“From the streets to the sky, I’ve always been interested in the spaces we dwell, the places that we create stories around, and the symbolism they hold. Birds have always held meaning within these stories. Entwined in history they weave through landscapes and myths. Rare, endangered or common, they link us to the places we inhabit. Their gestures also help create an image for our internal dwellings, imaging our emotion through movement. We connect us and our environments through the stories we tell about them and ourselves. My work seeks to explore those connections.”
