Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology
Dun Laoghaire Co. Dublin, June 6th to 13th 2002
All the work in this exhibition developed in response to the approaching birth of my first child and to my feelings as a soon-to-be father. Elise was born May 21st 2002 and has already changed the way I see the world around me, the way I see my wife Lorraine, and my view of myself. I stand witness to this fantastic process, and feel somehow immobilised, bolt upright as a phallus, while this child bubbles and seethes first within my wife Lorraine, then naked in the world proper. I want to reveal this feeling of the process from the male perspective, standing in the reflected light of the classic mother and child.
