Join Julianne Lafferty and Debrina Altered on a journey of discovery as they explore the annals of the past through story and folklore.
Enthral yourself in the haunting beauty of a church and the stories of family ancestry or dive into the deep ocean of Celtic folklore and symbolism.
Allow Julianne to introduce you to her new body of work, where she returns to her ancestral roots by studying light and shadow; the essence of photography. Follow her on her exploration of Saint Mary’s church where her ancestors, The Lyes, are buried. Revel in her choice of medium, so pertinent to her study of the past, where story is sometimes locked in the shadows of the past, or brought to the light and carried forth from generation to generation.
Or why not draw upon the influences of ancient folklore from Debrina Altered's Celtic ancestry, where her anthropomorphic assemblages honour the sea and the air. Imagine a world of mermaids, Selkies, bird women and more. Immerse yourself in the imagination of Celtic sea faring folk and the rhymes of ancient mariners but ensure you watch the weather!
