April 30th at the Museum of Country Life in Castlebar. Free tickets. Info and links here.
Been working hard with Breda Burns and the Mayo Artsquad to make newe site specific installations that will make the museum grounds exceptionally mystical on the eve of Bealtaine.
I recently made a music video for my mighty Alabaman friend Turner Williams. I really enjoyed finding all the patterns in his tune Droplet. The video was premiered on Raven Sings the Blues. The video was shot on Valentia Island on some wild water.
Myself and Breda Burns are resident artists with Artsquad, making work in response to the collection at the Museum of Country Life, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland. Our work will be presented as part of a nighttime event on Bealtaine Eve, April 30th. Supported by the Arts Council.

Group exhibition at Carroll Gallery, Tulane University. Nov 8 - 24, 2021.
In Ways of Looking: an invitation to thoughtful observation, the viewer is invited into the gallery space to experience art in a very conscious way. In the back galleries are two videos, with very different ways of communicating: Peach Body Summer by Ellen Bull presents a mysterious, open-ended narrative; The Thin Veilby Jane Cassidy provides an immersive sensory experience. The front gallery features selections from the Newcomb and Tulane Art Collections, with one area dedicated to detailed work that benefits from closer viewing with a magnifying glass. Another section of the gallery features works from those collections that have a story behind the artist that relates specifically to the Newcomb Art Department, and that context adds another layer of meaning to the work. A third section of the gallery has three very different everyday objects on view for the visitor to observe carefully through the act of drawing. Additionally, some resources on “slow looking” will be available to encourage visitors to thoughtfully engage with not only the artworks in galleries and museums, but also the visible world.
