Knowing and admiring her work for several years now, we were delighted to be hosting an exhibition of work by rising Cork artist, Hazel Hutton on Friday 11th November 2016. A huge crowd of fans and admirers, friends, family and former teachers came to the opening of this stunning exhibition. Writer, Alison Kavanagh opened the show (and almost stole it!) with a piece of creative fiction commissioned by the artist and reflecting Alison’s reaction to the work. The resulting booklet is available for €10.

“I try to capture the beauty in movement within static forms. Inherent ideas within interaction, sexuality and human tension are important within my figurative sculptures. I have a highly personal relationship with my materials and tend to give them their freedom allowing their raw and natural state to be the most important.”
