Aoibhin Maguire – Artist Facilitated Fantasy Journal Exploration – This World is Alien to Me – 3 to 3 Feb

Aoibhin’s practice explores emotion, place, home, storytelling, diaries, chaos and daydreaming with a dose of nostalgia. Her paintings are an overlap of reality and vivid imagination, of memories and the otherworldly. At times they are like parallel universes.

To complement her show in Pollen Studio and Gallery “This World is Alien to Me” of small, intimate works akin to the pages of a diary or a journal, Aoibhin invites you to create your own fantasy world journal entry.

What have you been daydreaming about recently? How would you represent your own sense of home or nostalgia in a diary for those in a parallel universe? Maybe you have a story to tell… or a secret to keep?

Come on down to Pollen Studio and Gallery Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th February 10am-6pm where Aoibhin will be on hand to assist you in exploring your ideas.

This artist facilitated meditative, contemplative happening is open for all to walk-in/drop in with materials and tea provided.

We hope to see you there 🙂
