Jude Bailey-O’Hare

The deterioration of a mind.
A visual response on the descent of a transient relationship through representational processes.

I decontextualize, then I reconstruct. Dissecting and looking past the obvious, close observation of the subject. I work on small scale because I believe it allows a more intimate, delicate connection with the piece while still allowing the viewer a broad exploration into the individual reality of each work.

I attempted to give up everything I loved that did not love me back. But now, I analyse and I make. Using first and second-hand experiences of toxic behaviour within a relationship as the subject matter while extracting the essence and feeling involved in those experiences through a trail and error process of stitching techniques to create an atmosphere within each piece that will push the audience to hopefully question and explore the meaning behind every action taken within their own relationship. Any relationship.

Within the range of small works, I have a variety of muted, pared-down pieces as well as over-worked, heavily-stitched pieces. The range of stitch techniques and styles are relevant to the depth and complexity of relationships.

Belfast Street Art Walking Tour

 

STARTS FROM: OUTSIDE THE DUKE OF YORK, COMMERCIAL COURT, BELFAST

START TIME: 12 NOON, (2HR), FINISHING AT BLACK BOX

Belfast is a weird, passionate, messed up place. The legacy of our conflict is about more than people, it’s about place. It’s about how the people of Belfast navigate this divided city, and how we build shared spaces for people of all backgrounds to co-exist.

If you spend any time in Belfast you’ll know that it’s walls are covered in art. Often this art has been used to mark territory for one side or the other but recently, alongside this, something transformative has been bubbling. Street artists from across the globe have joined a new breed of Belfast based street artists to leave their mark on the city, and in particular in the Cathedral Quarter where the annual festival Hit the North takes place.

As curators of this festival Seedhead Arts know the artists, the stories, and perhaps most importantly the need to forge a new narrative for Belfast. Our Street Art Walking Tour forms part of that narrative. This art speaks of love, of laughter, of anger, of beauty and of defiance but most of all it speaks of Belfast and the place that it’s becoming.

Join us for a gently paced, two hour walk around the ever changing face of Belfast Street art every Sunday at noon, leaving from the red benches on Commercial Court (beside the Duke of York)

Exhibition- Rachel Owen
Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 1 @ 7:00 pm

Rachel is a contemporary artist living and working near Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is currently in her final year at the Ulster University, Belfast studying fine art, painting. Rachel focuses on both the human form and the affect humans have on the environment.

She explores the human mind-set where we think we know everything when, in fact, sometimes nature knows more.

No matter where you live, the day-to-day human struggles remain the same. We give ourselves a very hard time, going over things in our heads, things we should have said, done, or just feeling like the world is against us. We are our own worst enemies. This body of work looks deep into our souls and explores the emotions we have, both of ecstasy and despair.

Real Sketchy
Feb 6 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints.

Although inspired by the spirit of Street Art, we’re really interested in the cross-pollenisation of different disciplines like comic, illustration, design, etc and how this plays out in a live environment, in a crowd of people with a wide range of skills and backgrounds. Plus beer. And music.

Thanks to sponsorship from Ink Monkey in North Street we are now able to provide pens, pencils and paper for everyone.
