The featured artist for May is JAYNE COOPER
Louth-based Jayne is exhibiting her latest project: Rebel Daughters 2018
She has imagined a fictitious army consisting of 100 female soldiers, created specially for the centenary celebration of some women winning the right to vote. Each comrade appears at first glance as a domestic, decorative object; forms and shapes resembling functional items such as vessels, teapots and clothes pegs often balance precariously and in improbable ways. Fecund and fertile forms are imbued with a confidence and regimentality that suggest these girls are definitely organised and 'up to something'.
Her playful batallion of Rebel Daughters is up for inspection in the theatre foyer during the month of May, Monday to Saturday 10am to 1pm and on performance evenings.
