“Pressing On” is an exhibition of works from Westport based Artist Sheelyn Browne. Produced as a result of ‘Lockdown with a printing press’, the images in this exhibition relate to the general state of mind at that time. Without realising it water became the central theme for Sheelyn. ‘The Swimming craze, it was figurative, local and robes became fashionable’. Declining to partake in a literal sense Sheelyn recorded those moments in print. Keeping with the water theme ‘white herons also represent the mood – walking, treading water, gathering remotely. escapism, loneliness, isolation, windows of freedom, a lot of waiting and finally escapism’, a constant theme throughout.
Sheelyn Browne is also the artist behind the officially commissioned Westival 2022 poster, which will be on sale from Cornrue, and through Westival’s merch sales.
