KELLY RATCHFORD and FREDA RUPP.

The exhibition will also feature work by our AGA members, namely AISLING CONROY, DAVID FOX, PAUL JAMES KEARNEY, SHEILA NAUGHTON and VICKY SMITH.

‘Somewhere between perception and reality’ is an exploration of the world of appearances, of surface scratching and the way we have to read between the lines -or images and layers- to get to the core of things.

Sometimes we have to look within to understand what’s without, but are we really looking? In the current climate of fake news and half-truths, maybe art can help us navigate the tortuous roads of reality by asking us to look again and again, to consider how others perceive our world. Then we might see theirs or at least find common ground…

Last Week of Sculpture in Context 2018, Botanic Gardens until 19th October 2018

Claire Halpin and Madeleine Hellier -Silver Seeded Cloud, Plastic globes, paint, model plane, metal shells, 160cm x 80cm x 90cm, 2018

Myself and Madeleine are delighted to be invited artists at Sculpture in Context 2018 at the National Botanic Gardens

The longest running and most successful sculpture exhibition in Ireland, this unique exhibition displays the inspiring and extraordinary work of over 100 established and emerging artists throughout the magnificent gardens.

Artwork: Silver Seeded Cloud

Artists: Claire Halpin and Madeleine Hellier

Plastic globes, paint, model plane, metal shells, 60cm X 180cm X 80cm, 2018

Location: Great Palm House

About the work:

During the Vietnam War, the U.S. military attempted to disrupt the Ho Chi Minh Trail, with bombing campaigns, ploughed the jungle to strip the land and used deadly chemical defoliants like Agent Orange. In fact, rain was the only one thing that significantly slowed the flow of supplies and people on the Ho Chi Minh Trail: as it turned the trails to mud.

Operation Popeye was a top secret U.S military project whose goal was to actually create more rain in Vietnam by artificially extending and intensifying the naturally occurring monsoon season. The research of Bernard Vonnegut, atmospheric scientist working with General Electric, helped lay the groundwork for the militarisation of cloud seeding – a process where planes sprayed clouds with silver iodide creating cloud condensation to rain.

From March 1967 to July 1972, the US Military Operation Popeye sent two planes per day to cloud seed – allegedly resulting in the extension of the monsoon period for of 30 – 45 days. The 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron carried out the operation to “make mud, not war”.

Nominated for Savills Art Prize 2018 by Olivier Cornet Gallery

I am delighted to have been nominated by Olivier Cornet Gallery for the Savills Art Prize 2018 – Ireland’s most significant contemporary arts award – will be awarded at Vue 2018 at the Royal Hibernian Academy.

The €5,000 Savills Prize is awarded to the artist who has produced an outstanding body of work in the last year or made some other substantial contribution to the visual arts in Ireland. I am honoured to be in the company of such esteemed artists on the long list.

This is the fourth year the Savills Prize has been presented at Vue, and we hope the award will become as important to Irish art as the Turner Prize is in the UK,” said Vue 2018 organiser, Patrick O’Sullivan.

“Savills is the perfect partner to present the Prize, as most art is found in homes and businesses, and not just museums.

“Vue 2018 is a great opportunity for collectors and investors to experience some of the best contemporary art currently being created in Ireland, and to get some expert advice and guidance from leading galleries.”
