Beneath the Dock Leaf
Superstitions have always held a core place in Irish culture, but as time progresses, the mischievous and malevolent spirits that once occupied the spoken word and imagination are being forgotten, only to be seen as figures of parody.
Pat’s practice explores superstitions and folklore. He takes mythological humanoids and fairies and attempts to portray them in a more realistic and contemporary fashion, rendering them as someone who could possibly pass us by on the street, giving
them invisibility through their normality.
Exhibition runs 14 January - 27 February
Official Opening Thursday 14 January, 7pm
