‘Invisible Cords’ is a collection of artwork developed by Kildare based Visual Artist Clodagh Kelly over the last ten years. Clodagh uses drawing, mixed media and natural materials to explore health, landscape, healing and form in space. This exhibition draws from three bodies of artwork ‘Scratched Room’, ‘Cruel Nature’ and ‘Boundaries’ allowing the underlying invisible cords that resonate between the different series to emerge.
