Last Saturday the 25th of June marked the final day of my Paper Bloom exhibition. I have been artist in residence at the Jackie Clarke collection since last September 2015, the time has really flown by, but I have enjoyed every minute of it, and learned so much.
I was blown away by all the people that showed up for the closing event, it was lovely to see so many people. My Paper Bloom limited edition publication was also launched at the closing event, we were giving away one free copy to everyone who attended. Edel Golden, the manager of the Jackie Clarke Collection was the MC for the event, she did an amazing job. Aidan Dunne, Irish Times Art Critic, was the guest speaker, he spoke so beautifully, it was lovely to hear what he had to say about my work. I said a few words to give people an insight into Paper Bloom, and to say thank you. My Paper Bloom publication is a permanent documentation of my Jackie Clarke Collection residency.
Thank you to everyone for coming to the closing event of Paper Bloom and my publication launch. I hope you enjoy my book!
