Works by Therese O'Halloran

    "My work investigates areas of body fragmentation, both spiritually and intellectually. Reference to cycles of life, death and rebirth allude to the timeless questions of human existence. In relation to these questions, the work has strong visual connections to past cultures and their traditions. Through the multiplication of singular body parts I suggest a loss of one's personal identity. Yet due to its numbers this manufacturing establishes a strong sense of majority. This visual force allows the viewer to question their own place in the relation to its power."
