SOIL BORN – Maddy Honan Hoey and Aylish O’Beirne Launch 6 February 6pm-8pm

February 6 @ 10:00 am - March 3 @ 4:00 pm

February exhibition at The F Project Gallery

Soil Born

Maddy Honan Hoey and Aylish O’Beirne

Recent Paintings and Plant-Dyed Costumes

6 February – 3 March 


Opening launch Wednesday 6 February   6pm – 8pm

The collected works in this exhibition tell of a reconnecting with the essential nature of Wild Woman, much discussed in mythology, but too often left out of daily domestic demands.

Centred around Maddy’s paintings depicting priestess-like figures having a sacred experience in nature, a moment of oneness with the Earth and highlighting their importance in it, the hope is to evoke recognition, mirroring some innate forgotten knowing in the bones, of the self as a perfect creature, born of blood and water, planting and nurturing seeds in the soil of this unavoidably creative life.

This is nothing new, and these are old ideas, but Maddy and Aylish’s complimentary styles come together here, and give celebration and opportunity to reopen conversations around our place on the Earth, and value of cultivating Wild Woman.

Supporting Maddy’s paintings, and as a tactile element, will be the plant-dye costumes of both Maddy and Aylish.

Eco-dye here is ritual made clothing, so to literally wear the trees, the soil, the earth as the robes of a priestess, a selkie skin, bringing us back to our source, our soul home, empowering the maker and wearer alike as caretakers of the cosmos, not merely along for the ride but as active participators in our human habitat.

From a vision of what Wild Woman looks like on canvas, to her garments in real life, touchable and wearable, ‘Soil Born’ is a bush-cubby where Wild Woman holds space for remembering.
