Everything Leaves Marks, Even Water
Today I was reminded that around this time 5 years ago I was working with my dear friend and wonderful author, Jan Carson on our exhibition for EastSide Arts Festival, Belfast. She asked me to respond visually to her short story collection, 'Children's Children'. This is a captivating collection of heartbreaking, yet hopeful magical realist stories set on our shores. I adored collaborating with Jan and her writing inspired a series of 32 mixed media magical realist seascapes which included the literal dissection and addition of lines of text from her book. I cannot wait to freely view art in the flesh again. Hopefully these times are on our horizon very soon.
