The Spaces Between
This written report provides further insight into the context and process of my creative work that focuses on my Irish heritage and the emotional repercussions of migration. These sculptures are inspired by the history, perseverance, and evolution of Irish culture. They explore my reactions to emigrating from Ireland to the United States. Together, these works display my understanding of self, biculturalism, and belonging. Using steel as my main material allows me to present the iconography of Ireland; ancient spirals, lozenges, interlace and zoomorphic knotworks, in a way that allows the images to become opened up, elegant and light. These works act as a link between the Irish culture of birth, my present American culture, and the void that is created between them.
