To the Well

The Hamilton Gallery in Sligo invited me and other women artists to respond to the commissioned poem, St Brigid’s Well, by Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Aosdána.  It was part of the Lá Fhéile Bríde / St Brigid’s Day celebration of women and creativity. This was an initiative created and pioneered by the Department of Foreign Affairs, and Ireland’s embassies and consulates around the world. (more)

To the Well was inspired by the poem’s opening line, “When I asked the way to the well people knew what I meant, and at last I found the place.” There is healing to be found in water, thus motivating me to respond in as simple a way as possible.
