EVENT: Sharon Leahy-Clark – Not Afraid of the Dark, Thursday 6 April at Paper Gallery


    PAPER #36: Sharon Leahy-Clark 
    Not afraid of the Dark

    Exhibition dates: 8 April – 13 May 2017
    Private View: Thursday 6 April 2017, 6-9pm
    For her solo exhibition, Not Afraid of the Dark, Sharon Leahy-Clark invites viewers to enter the unknown and to examine what it means, as she suggests, to ‘be’. Her highly intricate paintings on hand-made paper, reflect Sharon’s intuitive exploration of her experiences and beliefs that form her impression of ‘the self’.

    References the unconscious and uncanny; themes which recur in folklore and fairy tales, in which internal and external worlds merge, Sharon taps into a primal, universal relationship with the irrational. Sharon allows her audience to enter this world, stepping beyond the boundary of traditional tales and enticing you into the dark.
