Award-winning Inishowen artist Geraldine Timlin has opened a solo exhibition at Artlink, Fort Dunree.

Silent Spring is the much anticipated collection by Geraldine, a multidisciplinary artist who works locally.

She currently works in Special Education in Co Donegal supporting individuals with Special Needs, and is founder of the Avant Garden, a space for nurturing creativity and exploring the natural environment.

Geraldine’s own artistic practice explores aspects of Deep Ecology and our interconnectedness with the natural environment. She uses photography and film as tools in her creative investigation of environment and space, building a visual narrative of place and being.

The exhibition presents photography and video, recorded by Geraldine during the lockdowns of Spring 2020 and 2021. Photographic panels merge landscapes and rivers, human form and trees, representing our interconnectedness within the ecosystem. A short meditative film projection with immersive sound, designed by Pedro Rebelo, invites the viewer to share the stillness and flow of the natural world.

Silent Spring is an invitation to come along and be present.

The exhibition is open at the Saldanha Gallery, Fort Dunree, daily Mon-Sun 10.30am to 4.30pm from Friday 12th November to Sunday 5th December 2021.
