Dolly & Mick

Featuring Seamus Moran and Sinead Murphy

A musical double act, a relationship in crisis, is it time to face the final curtain?

Dolly and Mick are returning from a gig.  He’s a widower from Limerick, she’s a divorcee from Arkansas. They both know their relationship is in trouble. Mick thinks they just need a break. Dolly knows the only way to save their relationship is to give up the act.

A funny, engaging story with a poignant denouement and several live songs that echo the love and hope, disillusion and despair, passion and perseverance that colours their story.

About the Artists 

Jennifer O'Connor

My name is Jennifer O'Connor and I’m an artist and illustrator based in Co. Cork. I graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA (Honours) in Fine Art specializing in Painting in 2010.

My degree work received the Revenue Commissioner's Purchase Prize Award. 

Within my personal practice, my illustrations explores flora and fauna around us with a large focus on Irish wildlife in particular and the lore and magic associated with them. I try to imbue my illustrations with a storybook-like quality, done mainly in watercolour and acrylic ink on watercolour paper. I do a detailed drawing in pen first and then slowly build up layer after layer of watercolour.These flora and fauna are innocent by standers in this world which in turn makes them perfect windows into an often under appreciated world. Part of my process before starting any piece is to research some of the lore surrounding the specific flora and fauna I’m going to recreate. My inspirations comes from lore, myths, books and of course the beautiful natural world around us.

Marian Sheehan Ahern

I am a mixed media artist and tattoo artist from Cork living in Mallow for the past six years. I have a BA (Hons.) in Fine Art Printmaking and graduated in 2015 with an MA by Research through Art Practice from LSAD. My work has received the Locating the Gothic Legacy Award and The Curators Choice Drawing Award. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally since 2015, my work has been included in group shows in Brazil, Japan, Germany and the USA.

My art practice is strongly influenced by my research into Irish folklore superstition and oral storytelling. I feature Irish flora and fauna which have rich links to Irish cautionary tales within my work.

This series of work features tattoo ink paintings with an overlay of ink pen. Featuring both minute detail and expressive movement of ink on the page. Highlighting in the inner turmoil these figures are experiencing . They are an expression of the importance of mindfulness around mental health.
