Smaller Works


Human evolution and development are of great interest to Orla. How we analyse ourselves examine our shadow and ego, and how we connect with our surroundings is always explored in her work. In solo shows this is expressed with a body of work. With individual pieces they can be inspired by observations, about the self and our society - sometimes sculpting her own emotional landscape. As we grow in awareness, we realize that society demands that we separate our behaviour into acceptable and unacceptable, ego and shadow. But these unacceptable characteristics in our personality do not go away. We carry them with us, and so the shadow making process begins. This is an intriguing side of our persona and one that emerges in Orla’s work.
