“Eye Language” is a collaborative work by the poet Denise Curtin and visual artist and printmaker Geraldine O´Reilly.
The exhibition features ten poems written by Curtin accompanied by ten photo-etchings by O´Reilly from their hand printed book Eye Language. The images and language combine to evoke an exploration of the senses set against a midland backdrop.
Curtin is a native of Athy, Co Kildare, now resident in Portlaoise, Co. Laois. She has received a number of awards for her poetry including the Cecil Day Lewis Award for poetry and first prize in the Syllables Poetry Competition.
O´Reilly is a native of Killucan, Co. Westmeath and is presently resident on Inis Oírr, Aran Islands. She has a degree and diploma in Fine Art from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. To date she has had nine solo exhibitions and appeared in numerous major group shows.
