‘Mining the Image’, a short film featuring artist print maker, Margaret Irwin West.

Margaret Irwin West lives and works in Claddaghduff, Connemara, County Galway. Well-known to the art community in Galway and Dublin, Irwin West taught art in Dunlaoghaire, and in NCAD, Dublin, for many years. She has spent a lifetime teaching, making great work, and contributing in any way possible to the arts in Ireland through active involvement on voluntary boards and arts festivals . ‘Mo’, as she is known to her friends, has exhibited all over Ireland, in France, and in many other places around the world, but has never, until recently, had a full-scale solo exhibition in Dublin. Irwin West’s retrospective, ‘Mining the Image’, curated by myself, has opened in the Leinster Gallery, South Frederick Street, Dublin 2, 13-25 April, 2015. The film was made to illustrate the etching process, and is on view as part of the exhibition. ‘Mining the Image’ was filmed, directed, and produced by Dr Éimear O’Connor HRHA. Edited by Tom Rowley. http://youtu.be/ikfXNPLiwq4
