The ‘Glencree circuit’ is a popular route for walkers. As a local resident I have walked this circuit and valley numerous times. I have produced works from other ‘valley’/’circuit’ projects, eg – Connemarra ‘Twelve Bens’; Beara Peninsular. The Glencree circuit came into focus for me for work as a consequence of the ‘Shaking Bog Festival’ organised by Catherine Nunes in conjunction with Mermaid Arts Centre.

The work produced for this exhibition is a result of walking around the Glencree valley and surrounding hills – looking across the valley and walking up along the river. When I’m walking in the landscape, I don’t feel that I am simply observing appearances. The experience is too immersive and arresting of other senses as well as the purely visual, for example – being aware of the terrain and continual flux of light and weather. The exhibition is a collection of glimpses of the landscape and attempts to repossess the physical experience of regularly walking the area.
