Marielle Hehir

The work intends to reference from an extensive repertoire of sources; cross-cultural and cross time scale which are all symbolical. Such influences are used to build a language of motifs which interact in an intriguing and visually impacting manner. The roles of the traditional motifs I use within my work are shifted out of their appropriate setting, whilst creating a clashing of the boundaries. Design from thousands of years ago is paired with design from now in order to create a chaotic blur between two extremes whilst echoing shifts in values. Without being overtly political, the intention is to comment upon the world we live in.
A hallucination like presentation of the past, present and future, existing simultaneously.
