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.

The exhibition “Metamorphosis” has been delayed again unfortunately due to the venue not being ready. I will update the website once I know more about this amazing collaborative exhibition with an amazing array of artists based in the DunLaoghaire Rathdown area including my collaborator Anne Curran. Looking forward to getting our exhibition open soon. Watch this space …
I am delighted to say I have been selected to show another piece of work with ArtnetDLR in their “Emergence” exhibition due to be shown shortly. The work is called “Floraison” it’s Porcelain Ceramic sculpture of 30cm diameter in a glass fronted frame.
Delighted to share that one of my new pieces “Back to Nature” is online and available for sale with ArtnetDLR Transition exhibition. This piece hangs at 210cm long and 37cm width. The porcelain pieces hang and move lightly on fishing line suspended from a transparent acrylic circular disc. Porcelain as a medium fascinates me with its versatility. I love it’s translucent quality and it’s adaptability for creating natural forms. I feel I am still at the start of this interesting journey with porcelain clay and creating sculptural forms.
It’s an honour to be selected with some wonderful artists from the South Dublin area. See link below to access the work –
Hopefully people can get a chance to browse through the work as it’s all for sale online.

Delighted this piece “Flowering Feldspar” is now online at ArtNet Dun Laoghaire. I so enjoyed creating this piece, exploring the cracks and crevices and allowing the foliage to burst out like new seedlings emerging out of the ground 🙂
