Merry - go presents a heightened world of disrupted realities. Giant plants in bright fluorescents, adolescent girls stuck in the trappings of childhood, animals displaced and the cycle of life besieged.
The large, black photographs are made from hundreds of flat-bed scans, pieced together digitally to create seemingly seamless images of the hyper-real and fantastical. Donoghue has been working with photocopiers and scanners for years and love continuing to explore the capabilities of these technologies with regards to image making.
For this exhibition she also charts an evolution in her approach to mediums, her large-scale cyanotype works adding yet further layers to an image making process already set to beguile and deceive.
