Home of The Bewildered


Home of The Bewildered

“Home of The Bewildered “intervenes in the theatricality of a city to pull back the curtain of unreality in a post factual society that has always been based on inequities”. Allegedly. Apparently. It could be Home to Anybody. It probably is.”

So says the statement on Home of The Bewildered’s new webpage produced by Artist-Makers Online and being launched in time for the Fringe Festival.

Home Of The Bewildered is used by Dominic Campbell for unique collaborative projects with diverse specialists. Two decades of cultural sector experience includes Artistic Direction and Production of large festivals including St Patrick’s Festival (Dublin 99 to 2004), the nationwide Day of Welcomes marking EU expansion for Ireland’s Department Arts, Sports and Tourism (2004), Earagail Arts Festival and Bealtaine.

Artist-makers build site for Felicity Clear



Felicity is an artist and educator based in Dublin, who works in a variety of media, most recently exhibiting acrylic and graphite works on paper in venues such as The Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, The Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, The Galway Arts Centre and The Lab Gallery, Dublin.

“Felicity Clear’s large-scale works – graphite drawing and acrylic on paper – of high-rise modernist building schemes and open spaces of suburban parking lots with their expanse of low-rise trailer town sprawl, seem at once familiar, immediately recognisable, and yet, at the same time unfamiliar. They are of real buildings made strange. Isolated, distorted, distant. It is as if we have found ourselves in the midst of a dream, overing at its rim, a feeling of uneasiness pervades as of a jolted shock at sudden unexpected recognition. Before us lies the unreachable city – outcrops of buildings, some still in the process of development – building sites with ghost-cranes, cut off behind hoardings, or walls; masonry islands surrounded by water, or barely visible in the distance through endless rows of regimented trees. The skies above always large, open, vivid – soiled yellowy sunsets, muddied clouds drenched through purple water-filled skies, or startling blues and greens, or where clouds are swept forth like alien spaceships emphasising a romantic torrid, a certain playfulness. Felicity’s works possess a fictional quality of the fairytale but are imbued with a contemporary haunting, the possibility that here we are not on certain ground.”

From ‘Place(s) Without Place’, essay by Cliodhna Shaffrey, September ’07

She currently has her work on view in the Patrick Scott-designed dining room of The Central Bank in Dublin. You can view her site at here.

  • The Printmakers Gallery

    I recently designed a website for The Printmakers Gallery, on Drury St, Dublin. It’s a responsive website, built on WordPress. The menu slides off to the left and the content resizes when it detects a smaller screen, like on a tablet or smart phone. Check out the site here: The Printmakers Gallery.
