Gallery Asna: Clonakilty Community Arts Centre





Thaw is a solo exhibition of work by Jamie Ashforth, running April 2-23 at Gallery Asna – Clonakilty Community Arts Centre.

Thaw speaks to fluidity but infers solidity. It crawls inside the slow, quiet change of state. Experimental approaches to print, drawing, sound, photography, and installation archive these cusp experiences, in transition. Separate pieces link together like words completing a sentence. They speak of the space between delicate and durable, and absence and presence. Often teetering on the edge of clarity and obscurity, the work emerges and dissolves while protective layers incubate periods of flux. In the hazy stillness, we move through the gallery space as a landscape of its own.

Jamie Ashforth is a Canadian-born West-Cork based visual artist exploring new forms of connection through socially and environmentally engaged artmaking. She holds a first class honours Masters degree from Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork City, Ireland, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University, Montréal, Canada. Jamie has exhibited in several group and solo exhibitions, including last December’s Plus/Minus at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork City. She is artist-in-residence at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre this April through to the end of June.

Gallery Asna is open 11am – 5pm daily.

Many thanks to those who joined the exhibition opening April 2, 5-7pm, with opening remarks by Lucy Dawe Lane.
