This exhibition is the result of the rapport which exists between 3 artists: Maureen Considine, Kathryn Kelly and Annette Persson. These artists have an affinity for working intuitively and have shared with one another their diverse experiences of pain: physical, emotional and social. These varied and interlinked themes form the basis of the content of the show and the works
include: drawings, paintings, photography, video and installation. Finally, each artist has expressed a desire to respond directly to the space (Basement Project Space) in the installation of works in a co-operative and innovative manner.
Maureen Considine graduated from the Crawford College of Art in 2006 and she was one of 4 students who received the Art Trail selected artist award. In 2008 Maureen received an M.A. in Modern and Contemporary Art from University College Cork. Her works have been selected for numerous exhibitions nationally and she works in a variety of media including: installation, video, performance and photography. Maureen is currently secretary and a board member of Basement Project Space.
