Brooding Landscape by Noelle McAlinden
Emotional Landscapes is a multi-disciplinary virtual Art Exhibition with visual images, poetry, words, music and discussion. The exhibition is inspired by an artistic response to peace, health and well-being, influences of the pandemic, and themes of health and happiness intersecting with new borders of time and space in a changing landscape.
Emotional Landscapes features a significant body of work from leading visual artists Noelle McAlinden and Hina Khan. Alongside the visual artworks of Noelle and Hina, we are featuring the writings of poet and writer Féilim James, writer, actor and choreographer Fiona Bawn-Thompson, and a unique poem film In Time written by Mary Moynihan and co-directed by Mary Moynihan and Mark Quinn. In Time is performed by Carla Ryan and Kwasie Boyce with original music composed and performed on violin by Lisa McLoughlin-Gnemmi.
