Fragmented Earth, A Trilogy, is a collaboration between Anne Curran, a visual artist and Andrea Kavanagh, a sculptural ceramic artist, for the ArtnetDLR Metamorphosis exhibition currently on show in Walters, George’s Street Upper, Dun Laoghaire.
The three pieces were created to reflect our vulnerability in our world. We sought to create a tension with the juxtaposition of the artworks, where one hangs (Porcelain sculpture) one is burnt (on kitikata paper) and one is a solid artwork (encaustic painting.)
This delicate trilogy of works came from our individual processes and mediums. We both use organic materials, Anne with Encaustic paint (molten pigmented beeswax) and Asian papers, and Andrea with the firing of Porcelain flax paper Clay.
This Metamorphosis of our world where there are holes, there are small solid pieces hanging, by a thread, there is fragility in its solidity. Our Trilogy. Fragmented Earth, A Trilogy was a slow process in the making, started before Covid was unleashed on our world and now showing just as Covid is coming to an end. We both very much enjoyed its creation.
