Catalogue Text – Naomi Draper, ‘Preserving Fragments’, Roscommon Arts Centre, October 2017

Preserving Fragments

 

“I confess that, in order to envisage the Ireland of my best years, I throw my mind back for half a century. There were many “disadvantages” – few bicycles, no motor-cars on the roads, no domestic electricity, no tarmac, no jazz (or worse), but there was less rush, time to think about things, and time to hold communion with nature, which is much the same as communion with God.”

Robert Lloyd Praeger, Irish Landscape: Cnéithe na hEireann, (1953) [i]
