Uniquely Portable Magic

Shannon Bergin

Month of January

Shannon Bergin is an Irish illustrator and recent graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design. Her work is created using both traditional and digital techniques to create images that examine the role of fiction and its ability to shape our perception of reality. She aims to make illustrations that are accessible to children and adults alike, that tell a story through each detail that hides within the image.

This body of work consists of a series of illustrations that aim to investigate the essence of imagination, the fantastic and the method of escapism used in storytelling and play in childhood in an effort to examine the human connection to fantasy and narrative. These illustrations investigate archetypes through the details hidden within the image allowing for a mode of individual interpretation for the viewer. Through tropes and symbolism, the work aims to identify the aspects of the emotional journey of childhood we share and how this defines our experiences throughout life. The exploration of story as a medium upon which reality can be explored through allegory and metaphor in an attempt to describe, not what is real, but the truths that may be found in the fantastic.
