 Sléibhte Shácráilte: Sacred Mountains       by Marie Cullen

from Sacred Mountains

Free-hanging paper pieces depicting mountainous twisted rock, impenetrable and fragile, strange contorted shapes, the work of heat and cold and time. All are born of the marriage of technique experimentation; listening, walking, sketching; and a search for our connection to the Land, where Man’s displacement may begin to be addressed.

The first chapter in the story of any place is that which can be read in the rocks hidden below the surface. Three hundred and twenty million years ago, a century, a quarter of a mile, a couple of paces…” Tim Robinson.
