Sheenagh Geoghegan ‘Forgive me – love, Blue’

Exhibition by Sheenagh Geoghegan from 15th April to 6th May 2023.

Artist Sheenagh Geoghegan works with painting, drawing, words, sound and film exploring states of unsteadiness, vulnerability, interconnectedness and notions of broken, complicated love. Her work is rooted in place and experience, it is materially sensitive, and seems somehow imbued with transformative powers. Forgive me — love, Blue, her solo show at Atelier Concorde, Lisbon, celebrates the uneven, mischievous temporality with which we experience our world, how it evades linearity and mimics the unruly rhythms of our thoughts. Geoghegan maps these wayward rhythms in poetic ways as though guided by the kind of knowing and unknowing that exists only at the very edges of our consciousness.
