Spirit and Light

Vivienne Roche RHA

11 Jan, 2013 - 28 Apr, 2013

Vivienne Roche, one of our foremost sculptors, will be showing three suites of work in the Atrium.
Monuments, 2010, consisting of five pieces, were originally installed amongst the stone monuments in Christchurch in Cork that commemorate historical luminaries of the city. Roche’s monuments are a democratic act implying that regardless of status of any individual in society, every life remembered is an act of commemoration. These five pieces refer to five actual individuals who the artist describes as “not of my family but the lingering light of their lives has touched me nonetheless”.
In Sunlines 2010, Roche exploits the quality of dichroic glass to change colour as sunlight hits it at different angles. This four part piece is a simple and quiet meditation on time and change.
Well-Water Font/ Sea-Water Font, 2010, a two piece bronze, is again a rumination on mortality in this case to a life lost at sea and to a life lost while saving at sea.
