An Turas

(The Journey)

This series of works relates to my numerous travels in Ireland and Scotland beginning in 2003 and most recently to the Outer Hebrides in 2017. In 2005, I was an artist-in-residence at the Cill Rialaig Project in County Kerry, Ireland.

My Journey is an ongoing exploration of the enigmatic prehistoric and ancient sites of carefully designed and placed stone circles, standing stones, tombs, and dwellings which are scattered throughout Éireann and Alba. For me, they are vital reminders of elemental existence and serve as testaments to the human desire to understand and to connect with the cosmos.
