Helen Richmond – MFA Graduate, 2017

Helen Richmond, Ag Gabháil, 10000 x 207cm, acrylic on canvas 2017

This work is based on my experience of accessing Irish mythology through English translations. A common theme in many of the stories is how things are taken or possessed. This has led me on a journey in to the indeterminate / liminal realm where the act of taking is in progress and the outcomes and consequences are still open ended. This zone can be experienced as a place of isolation, death and endings but if owned and inhabited is also the place from where all new knowledge and new life evolves.
