Bernadette Kiely - Quay - work from the river

. Posted in Previous Exhibitions

Riverbank-fog-oil-on-canvasFebruary 18 - March 19, 2011

The quayside in Carrick on Suir where Bernadette Kiely grew up informed her deep connection and fascination with ‘the river‘, her life being regulated by the constant presence and flux of the river Suir. From a young age she often witnessed heavy flooding on the quay and the powerful natural force of the river imprinted itself strongly on her mind.
Since then Kiely has moved from the banks of the Suir to the quayside of the Nore, a fast moving volatile river, also subject to regular flooding. While she makes work based on the elements of air, fire and earth including growth and decay in nature it is to the element of water in the form of the river she consistently returns, making drawings, paintings, photographs and more recently video.

"I visited Japan in 2008 and was just so moved by what I saw at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I feel passionately about the nuclear threat and this work creates a calm and peaceful environment for people to come in and contemplate the meaning of what was done and what the future holds"

Stacia Blake, 2011

PIECE WORK FRIENDS 2011 is an exhibition by Laois artist Stacia Blake and friends which opened on 11th August. The work displayed will then be donated and sent to the Peace Parks in Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan as a symbol of peace and friendship.
