Speaking at the open event for her new exhibition, Fiona said: “’In Search of Pearls & Future Fossils’ is an exploration of our increasingly fragile relationship with the environment.
“With a growing awareness of the profound impact of human activities on our planet, I examine the omnipresent flotsam, detritus, and waste that lines the shores of Donegal – shedding a light on the consequences of our human generated ‘natural’ waste. During these uncertain times, I hope that my artworks act as visual cues – prompting the public to reflect on humanity’s relationship with the environment and question our feelings towards resilience, renewal and repair.
“As an avid hiking enthusiast and dedicated collector of natural and found objects, I draw inspiration from my passions – infusing them into my creative pursuits. My sculptural works deconstruct formal elements, presenting new configurations which interweave conflicting narratives of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’”.
