'Exploring the Lakes of Mayo' by Annaliese Brown

Free Admission

Exploring the Lakes of Mayo
The County of Mayo has at least 70 named lakes with unique shapes, which change
over time with the rise and fall of the water levels, affected by tree planting, weather,
changes to land use and urban development. My work originated with the idea of
exploring and experimenting with the shapes made by the lakes in the landscape,
viewed from above.
I am consistently inspired by the nature and topography of my rural home place, and
in this work I use printing lino to carve the outline of the lakes and the tributary rivers,
and sometimes adjoining roads and laneways. I then use the carved lino to make
ceramic reliefs. The light and shadows made by the undulations and ridges in the
clay fascinate me. These panels capture the lakes at a brief moment in their history,
momentarily halting their constant flux in shape and size.
