Germane by Clare McShanag

“A germane visual explosion – relevant to life or to subject under consideration, to our human-ness. My work is very personal, I would have you look closer into the image to the fine detail that unfolds upon each viewing. ” – Clare McShanag.

Clare McShanag’s solo show Germane seeks inspiration from life and movement, capturing the dynamic moments and the colour of life. Both dark and beautiful, these photographs expose a mixture of the surreal and abstract. Photographs that are distorted yet discernable, visibly soft, yet impact the viewer with their sharper edge. McShanag’s photographic works ignite a fuel and awaken an experience for the eyes of the beholder.

Opening night celebrations are from 6pm – 8pm, 28 July.

WHEN: Tuesday 26 July to Sunday 7 August 2016
Every day, 10am to 6pm

Working With Trauma

The impact of trauma has been widely recognised but understanding its consequences for humanity is only in its infancy.
