May 3, 2020. ENERGY

"Energy" by Harrie Costello
I find it in the early morning 
Whilst the rest of the world is not there 
and the peak of the sun is adorning 
the dew and the mist in the air 

It’s different under a stage light 
When your lips touch the pop screen of a mic 
It is constant, even in stage fright 
And renders us almost childlike 

Burnt out by flex of arms 
Feed turns to poison in one 
Built up to execute charm 
Kept until it must come undone 

Although the cup does runneth over 
And your primary source does run dry 
One can become quite the rover 
It’s tiresome, to watch it 
Everchanging 
Until we die
“Energy” by Louise Blake
"people are overwhelming" by Linda M. Crate
i try to be upbeat,
but i am an empath;
an emotional sponge
 
all the negative energy
is exhausting to my
soul
full of love and light,
and dreams and kindness;
compassion and mercy—
 
i feel overwhelmed
people are too much
i just want to be a hermit crab
 
just climb into my shell,
and linger there
until this pandemic is gone
because i find people overwhelming
on their own even more so
now.
"On Watching Him Read" by S.J. Saighead
Upon his face, careless pleasure
Below his eyes and on the mouth.
Upon this you could watch forever;
Sustained on only this, no doubt.
To watch his eyes play down the page,
eager for the next encounter,
A joy unsullied by weary age:
His love is yours, it shall not fade.
“Gambol in a Silver Frame” by Cara Gilliland

What was striking to me in creating this piece was it’s movement. The colours embark in a dance; from the fiery licks of red into a softer mute and through to energetic ribbons of green. This sequence repeats on itself. The glass panel interrupts this flow and imposes it’s only rhythms and directions, the silver akin to the green in it’s vitality.

My name is Seán and I am the creator and curator of the Artistic Differences Project. I started this project during the lockdown in Ireland due to COVID-19 in March 2020 as a way to get my friends and I creating during a troubling time. From there the project as gone from strength to strength and now we publish a new exhibition every two weeks.
