Launch 15 March 5-6.30pm
Every Spring Lismore Castle Arts runs A Space for Lismore, which seeks to invite an artist to work with the local community in Lismore.
Carol Anne Connolly’s visual art practice is primarily concerned with the cultural, civic and social ideas that relate to ‘place’ in contemporary society. She draws from a variety of media, strategies and techniques to create work that is often driven by site-specific, historic and community intervention. In considering landscape as a reflection of our relationship and attitude towards nature, Connolly, through an artistic lens seeks to investigate, represent or re-imagine contemporary ideas that relate to our environs.
For A Space for Lismore, the artist has conceived Pattern Landscape, a new project that aims to examine the socio-historical relationship between nature and design by researching its manifestation in the locality of Lismore. Focusing on the concept of ‘contemporary landscape interpretations’, Connolly and local community residents will create a series of digital motifs. The final works will be exhibited in St Carthage Hall, Lismore.
