While cocooned with Coronavirus I have devised an outdoor exhibition in Dublin, using boarded up premises and advertising billboards as my canvas. I have named this show ‘ The Naked City ‘, as Dublin is now a sad, lonely and empty space. It is of course a ‘virtual exhibition’, which will be hosted on Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, Etc and can be viewed on: https://vimeo.com/419297294/00ee2d988d
In 2009 I started a project entitled Elements of Nature. It used the nude female form in the urban and rural landscape to reflect issues of the day, including global warming, the position of women in Church and State, racism, sexual repression, consumerism, the economic collapse and the heavy burden carried by many for the greed of a few.
A selection of images from that project, form the basis of this new exhibition, which is prefaced with editorial photographs from the last decade, which informed my project.
