Fire from Stone

Eileen MacDonagh

The search for perfect form has always excited Eileen MacDonagh. She is deeply influenced by books such as Robert Lawlor's Sacred Geometry and Fritjof Kapra's The Tao Physics in which formal patterns are linked to ideas, religions and to the physical make-up of the universe. She loves the colour, texture and density of granite and limestone, as well as the challenge of working on a large scale. Installed in the courtyard, MacDonagh's recent works Orbit and Lunar Chess Board are on show together with seven large Stars from her Icosahedron series, some of which were specially created for this exhibition.
