Bishopstown Library:-

'Trysect' An Exhibition of Print, Painting & Photography by
Ken Rogers, Christian Elsholtz and Anna O'Riordan

Anna O'Riordan Artist Statement:

Anna O’Riordan is a 2018 Fine Art graduate of CIT Crawford College of Art & Design (CCAD). Anna’s work is held in both public and private collections, including Cork City Council. Recent exhibitions include Impressions Biennale 2019 at Galway International Arts Festival, Ón talamh agus ón tra, at the Joan Clancy Gallery, Co.Waterford, K-Fest Music & Arts Festival, Co. Kerry and Cork Printmakers Members Summer Exhibition at the Lavit Gallery. Anna is a member of Cork Printmakers and Sample Studios Cork.

Anna’s work is multidisciplinary, incorporating installation, sculpture and print. The work is concerned with folding and flattening of memory and history over time. The language of the ruin manifested in aged objects, desolate landscapes and ruined architecture underscores the work. New work takes the form of print, with special consideration given to folding, layering and compressing, physically and through the process of printmaking.

Christian Elsholtz Artist Statement

Christian Elsholtz is a recent graduate of the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork, where he graduated with first class honours in 2019. He has always had a strong connection with nature and plant life in particular, previously he worked in care settings as a social care gardener.

In his artwork Christian uses different mediums, such as photography, print and sculpture to create installations that explore the relationship between the constructed order of civilisation and organic wild nature.

Ken Rogers Artist Statement:

I tend to see beauty where others don’t, I am drawn to the macabre and works that are slightly grotesque or menacing and this comes through in my own work. There are many artists whose work I admire and influence me such as, Mark Quinn, Kathe Kollwitch and the Chapman Brothers to name but a few.

Most of my 3D work is a combination of ceramic and steel, but I also use other materials such as plastic, wood and as many upcycled items as possible. I make both figurative and abstract pieces, and the use of negative space is an important part of my work.

For this body of work I am exploring the theme of fear. Some are of a personal nature such as my fear of technology, while others are more general in nature such as the fear of masks. The word “Mask” comes from the Arabic word Maskara, to falsify-transform into animal, monster or freak, and in Egyptian it means leather or second skin. With this in mind I made a series of 2D and 3D work with exaggerated and slightly grotesque features, hoping to create a mood and generate an emotion for the viewer.

Exhibition runs for the month of September
