MA:18

I cannot believe it is time for my MA Graduate Exhibition!!

I have spent the last 12 months doing an MA in Creative Practice at the Centre for Creative Arts and Media, GMIT, Galway. It is a very intense course but I have really enjoyed the experience and feel very grateful for it.

MA:18 Graduate Exhibition opens Culture Night 2018 – Friday the 21st of September at 7pm, at the Connacht Tribune Print Works, Galway City. It opens daily until the 30th of September from 11am to 6 pm. All are welcome.

MA Thesis

Today I handed in my MA thesis!

Memorialisation and Counter Memorial – I really enjoyed my chosen subject. I discussed artists Felix Gonzalez Torres, Doris Salcedo, Maya Lin and Rachel Whiteread.

Next up – MA Graduate Exhibition opening the 21st of September!

KAWS – video interview

I definitely recommend watching this video of the artist KAWS  –  KAWS went from a skater kid doing graffiti around New York City to illustrating the beloved animated series Doug to creating instantly recognizable pop art that gained visibility the world over. The artist, painter, designer and toymaker details how he linked with Nigo and Pharrell in Japan, collaborated with Jordan and Uniqlo for sold-out capsules, and created motifs that elevated fine art into the cultural zeitgeist.

Entropy video

Check out the video piece documenting my newest work Entropy.

This exhibition is supported by the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme managed by Arts & Disability Ireland.

Visual Art Programme for Schools – Entropy

It is so great to see schools engaging with my exhibition Entropy at the Linenhall Arts Centre.

The Linenhall Arts Centre – This May our Visual Art Programme for Schools is based around Katie Moore’s exhibition “Entropy”. The pupils visit the gallery and engage with the art work using the Visual Thinking Strategies approach. One child said “It’s like someone dropped them and they are left floating”, and another observed “It’s mostly made of nature, and the plants are from nature.” Following the gallery visit the pupils are taking part in a workshop in which they explore creating a flower from paper in order to symbolise something. One teacher commented about the workshop “It required attention and concentration and kept all engaged.”
