Ella de Burca: Wolfroy Goes to Town
Next in our series of online exhibitions is Wolfroy Goes to Town by Ella de Burca. In Wolfroy Goes to Town Ella has created a series of images from watercolour, eggshells and pulverised petals. The images serve as devotions to the flowers growing in her garden. Ella’s research into their medicinal healing properties overlaps with her research into the mystical properties of viewer interpretation.
Ella works through performance, sculpture and poetry to focus on how humans construct meaning, particularly from a female perspective. Ella is especially interested in how we perform as ‘viewer,’ and the discourse surrounding active versus passive experiences.
Ella de Burca’s ‘Wolfroy Goes to Town’, is now available here.
