"I confess I find such a place not lonely or depressing but inspiriting. You are thrown at the same time back upon yourself and forward against the mystery and majesty of nature and you may feel dimly something of your own littleness and your own greatness."
Robert Llyod Praeger 

Happy Christmas to all

Cill Rialaig Project

Very glad and full of joy to be going back to this magic place for a residency in the next few days 

You have to slowly let go 
of all that you've clung to tightly to survive 
because here you need something else to survive
you need to sit with the very stuff you're made of 
rediscover solitude 
and the silence
oh the silence
and the sea.

Upcoming solo show

Solo Exhibition of new works by Natasha Pike at Origin Gallery, 37 Fitzwilliam Street Upper, D2. To be opened by Peter Murray, director of Cork's Crawford Art Gallery, 20th of October from 6-8pm. Show runs until the 14th of November.

This collection of drawings and paintings are a culmination of Pike's work and time spent in Berlin. An emigrant returning home after three years, this show explores the dynamics of identity.

Moving from rural Ireland to inner city Berlin and back, these works contain a new boldness of power and freedom fed by a fierce need to understand the city, the history and the identity of it, to gauge the individuals in it as if in self reflection and questioning. While the work is executed with restraint and discipline, the show remains hopefully vibrant.
