Portal – An Exhibition by Tina Claffey

Phoenix Park Visitors Centre
4th -28th of May 2022
Portal Exhibition Phoenix Park

The Phoenix Park visitors centre hosts Tina's 'Portal, Otherworldly wonders of Ireland's Bogs Wetlands & Eskers' exhibition fro the 4th - 28th of May. Tina will also do a special illustrated lecture on the 21st of May at 3pm, for 'International Day for BioBiological Diversity'.

Tina Claffey, award winning photographer & author of 'Tapestry of Light', loves to get 'lost' in the bogs, eskers and wetlands of Ireland with her macro lens. Her latest solo show takes the viewer through a portal to other wondrous worlds that co-exist with us through her macro lens.

Lichens become enchanted forests, mystical goblets appear that are fit for otherworldly kings and queens. Tentacles of carnivorous sundews poise like a cobra ready to strike, while wondrous sphagnum mosses lay in frozen waters in suspended animation, their feathery limbs outstretched surrounded by magical bubbles. Immerse yourself in scenes within these ancient watery worlds that defy your sense of reality, while appreciating the ancient wilderness you are exploring.
