'The Littlest Star'

An Exhibition by Cliodhna Quinlan

Tuesday 28th September to Saturday 9th October 2004.

Cliodhna Quinlan, a Bray-based artist, is pleased to be returning to the Signal Arts Centre for her second solo exhibition, the culmination of over a year's work. The exhibition encompasses the inspirational watercolours from the artist's travels in Spain, her winter embroideries and the summer work using her short story 'The Littlest Star' as a starting point. (Text from the 'Littlest Star' is included with this catalogue).

Drawing strongly from dream imagery and symbolism, Cliodhna strives to communicate, through her work, the importance and benefits of harnessing the subconscious in both our creativity and everyday lives.

The Rangavallis in the exhibition are interpretations of Indian ceremonial drawings. Traditionally, evening and morning Rangavallis are drawn on the wedding day and depict the young couple starting their life together, in the morning going out to the fields to work, and in the evening returning home to rest.

Further examples of Cliodhna work may be viewed at her website www.cliodhnaquinlan.com. She accepts commissions and may be contacted by email at clioq@yahoo.com or through Signal Arts Centre during the exhibition dates.

*Cliodhna has unframed watercolours available at Gallery desk.

Opening Reception: Thursday 30th September 7-9pm
