Amy’s long-term photographic project, Confections, explores issues of desire, the quest for perfection, humor and a little feminist rebellion surrounding the domestic do-it-yourself phenomenon in contemporary popular culture.
Tim Portlock was born in Chicago, which inspired his lifelong interest in the dialogue between place and the formation of identity. While holding two degrees in painting (BFA, painting, Kansas City Art institute and MFA, Studio Art, University of Chicago) he also has a degree in Electronic Visualization (MFA, University of Illinois at Chicago). Portlock’s computer generated images present post-industrial cities as subject matter using the conventions of 19th century American landscape painting. He has exhibited in France, the UK, Poland, Argentina, Austria and Japan as well as other countries in Europe, North America. Portlock is a recipient of 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts. See a recent article on Tim’s work here.
These events were developed with artist Angie Duignan and with support from Broadstone Studios. Amy got to know artist, Angie Duignan, in the summer of 2010 while participating in the art@work residency programme in Co. Roscommon. Adapt is the second of two exchange exhibitions. The first titled Interchanges (Apr – May 2012) was curated by Angie Duignan in Philadelphia and featured the work of 8 Irish Artists at The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CEVA), Philadelphia. The idea for these exchange exhibitions was forged by Amy and Angie’s friendship and a desire for an international collaboration.
Adapt is included in the OPEN Programme for PhotoIreland Festival which takes place 1-31 July 2012.
