SHEEPWIRE I and 2
These rolls of sheep wire are elements found in the landscape within which I work , Dún Chaocháin , Erris Co Mayo, Sheepwire 1+2 are from a larger body of photographic work .
The shape and forms of the wire both compliment and contrast to the natural environment which is open, and wild. A special area of conservation of bogland, at the junction of the high sea cliffs and the Atlantic.
Elemental in the workings of the landscape, sheep wire defines areas, confines animals, protects land from grazing .Present everywhere, visible and invisible simultaneously.
