Abstract

'Upcycled Dog' is an etching print construction which is part of a larger body of work investigating concepts based on identity and anthropomorphism. This body of work focuses mainly on cherished possessions within the home and how these reflect a person's character, bear physical traces or reveal the identity of their owner. The work also questions whether the object itself over time evolves its own character, emotions and personality while retaining some of their past. These objects also take on new lives and energy with change of owner, altered surroundings and repair work. 'Upcycled Dog' is based on a rescued family possession which was once used as golf putting target practice but now boasts a new lease of life having pride of place within the home as a reminder of fond childhood memories. The erosion during the process of etching resonates with the decay and scars embedded in the furniture over time. The format of the work resembles a cabinet within a 'glazed' box 'cabinet'. Like a museum artefact, you can look, reminisce but not touch. The artefact and memories associated with them are preserved and immortalised. 'Upcycled Dog' was exhibited at The Royal Ulster Academy Exhibition at The Ulster Museum, October 2018 ,- January 2019, In a three person show at The Oriel Gallery, Clotworthy House, Antrim and has been selected for The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers National Original Print Exhibition at The Bankside Gallery, London 18 - 29 September 2019
