Anne Wright — An Art Residency — Process, Practice, Poetry, Place

In August and September 2016, Anne did a month-long artist residency at the Burren College of Art in the haunting limestone Burren in County Clare on the west coast of Ireland.  The theme of ancestors continued to thread through her work, with a deep fascination of stone walls… particularly the “famine walls”.  They rise up into the Burren hills, built as “make work” projects by people trying to survive the famine in exchange for a meagre wage from the British landowners of the time.  Join Anne as she talks about how Place and Poetry supported her in deepening her practice with encaustic and cold beeswax — and how all of that informed her continued admission of how her ancestry lives in her today.
