There will be a globe, mounted on an easel, but if you touch it you will get powder on your fingers.There is likely to be a pigment work, possibly also using dibond, which might start on the wall and then shift to the floor but if you walk through it, you will get powder on your shoes and leave footprints on the floor. In 1907, in Galway, Marconi created the first commercial, transatlantic radio signal connecting Europe and North America. If you look at the charcoal drawings, there are circular elements (Globes? ) and very strong suggestions of outer space, perhaps of electrons or atoms whirring through.As I only had time for art in the holidays – not like my patchwork or crochet projects, which could be fitted into winter evenings – I mostly sketched my holiday scenes.At first I took quite a few photographs too, to capture a ‘true record’ for copying at home; but later I realised that the sketch itself is the record, and can show so much more of the spirit of the place and the day than any photograph. One must be able to laugh at themselves, especially in this business. Watch this video, then tell me where you attend church AND if you'll be submitting an entry! Well you know I know your Dad too and if you look in the dictionary under great human beings... Happy Fathers' Day to all of the incredible fathers and father figures out there.
Although it has a number of familiar component parts, such as the large charcoal drawings, it is not like an exhibition produced by, for example, a painter, in which every work has a life of its own and can be separated from every other work on the walls.
The artist started with eight sheets of dibond (H 2440mm x W 1220mm) of the same substance.
Dibond is a shiny, reflective, aluminium composite made from two layers of the metal with a plastic centre in-between.
Mc Keever cuts these sheets into strips, thinner ones between 23 and 25 mm and thicker ones between 58 and 62 mm, which she can bend and twist. As the wing nuts project outwards, they are nodal points for the attraction and reflection of light.
The already-mentioned work that was in the corridor outside the artist’s studio will be in this room, and there will be at least one other similar piece, probably a mirror image of this one, though it might reside on the floor as opposed to coming off a wall.
