About the Piece
"Coming from a family of swimmers, I wanted this piece to reflect an up-close perspective of the experience of the Liffey Swim. I asked family members who have completed the swim on a number of occasions about their experiences on the river, and wanted to capture the perspective of the swimmer, immersed in green, passing under Dublin's iconic bridges, all kicking and pulling to become the one to win Dublin's most iconic swimming race.
I tried to rely on the aesthetic qualities and unique process of screen printing for this piece, choosing a green backdrop for vivid white ink and bold blocks of colour to stand out and show the swimmers emerging from the murky Liffey waters."
