Travel, transition, instability and small moments of stillness are the themes underpinning this body of mixed media works on paper by Josephine Fagan. The imagery is symbolic and informed by her 6-week residency in Athens and Skopelos, Greece, where she set out to investigate cross cultural symbols of fortune, mythology and history. Inspired by a range of influences during the residency including ancient Minoan ceramics, Byzantine paintings, site-specific folkloric tales and ancestral stories, she has produced a suite of images that offer the viewer an insight into the artistic process from initial ideas to experimentation, synthesis and generation of works; moving from flux to stasis and back again.

Josephine Fagan is a cross disciplinary artist and educator, practicing since 1999.
