Oakville: Oakville Galleries, 2008

Essay from the catalogue from Oakville Galleries show Deirdre Logue: Beyond Her Usual Limits curated by Matthew Hyland. September 13 to November 16, 2008.

'I am 38 years old/ and sometimes/ I worry so much/ I worry/ It will kill me.'

To worry can also mean 'to pull, to tear, to lacerate." Deirdre Logue's repetitive actions, destructive, unnerving or bizarre act as mirrors to our own anxieties and neurosis, and make us venerable just by watching.
