Flowerfield Arts Centre celebrates reopening with exhibition by acclaimed artist Helen Merrigan Colfer

1 Mins read

Flowerfield Arts Centre is celebrating its reopening with a solo exhibition by award-winning artist and sculptor Helen Merrigan Colfer which can be viewed from tomorrow (October 3rd) to November 14th.

The ‘Tribes and Tribulations’ collection includes precise and elegant resin and bronze figurative sculptures, alongside the audio-visual Covid Diaries, a series of paintings and illustrations created during lockdown. These relatable artworks address the recent challenging situations that have faced us all, with wit, humour and sensitivity.

Reflecting on the title of her exhibition, Helen said: “Our place of origin, or the people we are surrounded by, can alter our sense of belonging, self-identity and self-belief. If it is negative we can react differently to those who seem to have only experiences of being loved, protected and valued. We perform daily, put on costumes, hide behind masks, fearing that we don’t belong. Constantly in a state of flux.”

Helen works from her studio on the tip of the Hook Head Peninsula in coastal Wexford, overlooked by one of the oldest working light houses in Europe. From this creatively inspiring location she makes art that is exhibited throughout Ireland and internationally, and held in a number of important private collections.
