Blackboard, 2005

Graphite on paper, wood-frame and shelf
8 ft x 4 ft

“The most beautiful work is probably by Clodagh Emoe, who shows a series of linked drawings which share a sense of wonder at the scale and extent of the physical world, together with an underlying doubt as to whether we can ever really grasp the nature of that world. Her Blackboard is just that, except that its surface consists of a huge expanse of lustrous graphite. It’s terrific in itself, and it encapsulates the idea of making the imaginative leap from the confines of the classroom to infinity.”
Aidan Dunne, Irish Times, 2005
