Through this exhibition the victim becomes the warrior by addressing perceptions of conflicting cultural projections played out through society. Graham’s practice is a trajectory of self-reflection, personal narrative, and memoirs where the viewer completes the experience. Handmade process is essential to the practice. The traditional mediums of drawing, fine print are collage are key to generating the intricate visual representation that penetrates the memory of the observer creating unconscious and organic emotional reactions.
Opening Tuesday 20th Oct at 6.30pm. Show continues Oct 21st – 20th Nov 2015. For further info or images please contact : Ciara on 01 2785866 or firstname.lastname@example.org
