We worked with a group of asylum seekers - lodged in an unused hotel in South County Dublin - who joined a sewing club as a way of passing the time during their extended waiting period. WE BROUGHT THEM good quality AFRICAN cloth - Dutch Wax - unavailable in Clondalkin, and far beyond their means…


Exploiting the phenomenon of Negative Afterimage, we look at the faces of six women, Dutch Wax can be explored on a series of levels, as an exploration of visual phenomena, or a reflection on identity, culture and migration, or as a deliciously indulgent exploration of pure colour.
