Ráiteas Ealaíne / Artist Statement

Ullmhaíodh an saothar sa taispeántas seo in ómós do shraith ghrianghrafadóireachta a rinne an t-ealaíontóir Robert Mapplethorpe. Nuair a fiafraíodh de Mapplethorpe cén fáth a raibh sé ag déanamh grianghraf de rudaí neamhshuntasacha ar nós bláthanna, dúirt sé, “these are New York Flowers”. Is fiailí iad seo ach is fiailí de chuid na Gaillimhe iad.

This work in this exhibition is a personal response to Robert Mapplethorpe’s flower series. When he was asked why he was photographing just flowers, he replied,  “these are New York Flowers”.  These may be just weeds, but they are Galway weeds.
