Is féidir mí-úsáid a bhaint as cultúir thraidisúnta sa taobh seo tíre mar insint dhiúltach, agus mar dhóigh leis an lámh in uachtar a fháil ar an dream eile. Tá níos mó i gceist linne ná bratacha agus clocha colbha. Tá áilleacht inmheánach bainte le gach cultúr cé go ndéantar neamhaird air seo in amanna. Chruthaigh foirgnimh agus láithreacha éagsúla ar nós Chaisleán Chnoc an Anfa, Mainistir Chluain Ard, Reilig Bhaile an Mhuilinn agus Páirc Windsor saothair thar a bheith suimiúil, siméadrach atá scartha ó na tréithe traidisiúnta a bhaineann leo. Tríd an rogha saothair seo, tá mé ag iarraidh tú a spreagadh le hamharc níos faide i gcéin ná an stair atá ag áiteanna agus sult agus tuiscint a bhaint as an áilleacht taobh istigh díobh. Cuimsíonn mo shaothar píosaí ilathraitheacha arna spreagadh ag láithreacha agus sainchomharthaí tíre a n-aithnítear baint a bheith acu le cultúir amháin seachas a chéile, bunaithe ar na cultúir scartha anseo. Ag díriú an spotsolais ar áilleacht atá sofheicthe gach áit anseo, ach fios a bheith agat cá háit le hamharc, fíoráilleacht i ngach cultúr ar féidir sult a bhaint as gan réamhchlaonadh.

Traditional Cultures in this part of Ireland can often be abused and misused as a negative commentary, ‘a stick to beat the other side with.’ We are more than just flags and kerbstones. All cultures have an intrinsic beauty within, which is often overlooked. My new series of work I have focused on aspects of the built landscape which have traditionally been associated with one or the other side. Buildings and locations such as Stormont Castle, Clonard Monastery, Milltown cemetery and Windsor Park, created intriguing symmetrical compositions divorced from its previous traditional associations. Through this selection of work, I want to encourage all to see beyond the history of a place and appreciate the beauty within. My work is kaleidoscopic pieces drawn from locations and landmarks previously identified to be one or the other culture, from divided cultures here. Highlighting the beauty which is visible everywhere if you know how to look, a true beauty found in each culture which can be appreciated without prejudice
