Eight Gallery, Dublin, February 21st – March 6th, 2015

 

PM66 - Hyde Bridge Gallery, Sligo, 21st April - 10th May 2015

 

Based on the life of a visually impaired person, I have researched the condition through a family member who has gradually lost their sight over the past 20 years.  Through mixed media and installation the exhibition will feature personal belongings and household items that have been adapted to adjust to everyday life and daily tasks. Displaying how the use of memory, touch and order become a way to adapt to life without sight. Other areas covered include the deterioration of sight as observed through the strength of reading glasses lenses, and change in familiar images and paintings.  The loss of your own handwriting and ability to read. The use of other people to translate through description the things you can no longer see.
