A new map of Ireland where the East and West coasts draw closer together, to create a sort of interior lake, a land locked mixture of sea & ocean. It takes us on a ‘round trip’ journey of the bays, heads and points which characterise the Irish coastline. A line which unites and determines the tension between water and land.
The original collage was made from a single map of Ireland in homage to his innovative use of collage by the Czech visual artist & poet, Jirí Kolár. The title is taken from the Avoca river in County Wicklow, which starts life as two rivers,Avonmore (Irish: Abhainn Mhór, "Big River") & Avonbeg (Irish: Abhainn Bheag, "Small River").
Where these join is a recognised place of great beauty hence the ‘Meeting of the Waters’.
