Sceal Eile'- the first solo show
of London-based, Clare artist Valerie Driscoll
The Courthouse Gallery,Ennistymon
Courthouse Gallery,Ennistymon, Co Clare presents 'Sceal Eile'- the first
solo show of London-based, Clare artist Valerie Driscoll from the 10th
to the 29th January with the opening reception on Saturday the 10th at
4pm. It is an exhibition of photographic and sculptural installation that
tells the story, as a courthouse might, of something that is hidden. The
daily engaging in the private domestic procosses is played out in the
gallery as home. Driscoll explores the dichotemy between domestic realities
and public display. Phrases such as 'behind closed doors' and 'airing
dirty laundry',she says add to the ambiguity as well as to the curiosity.
The inherent hardship,banility and private experience
of the Irish domestic situtation is exposed and shown to be infused with
hope. A series of photographs entitled 'A few things around my father's
kitchen' is an intimate portrait that reveals a quirky and private universe.
Driscoll uses object and image to reveal experienced as well as created
environments.This is a poignent,revelatory body
of work that at the same time betrays and comforts.
Driscoll worked as a teacher in London for 10 years.
She recently gave up teaching to persue a career in photographic art.
Driscoll has exhibited in London at the Sassoon
Gallery and Nolias Gallery. She also showed work at Isaacs in Cork City
during the European City of Culture.
