“The photo etchings were also used for several out-door projections and for lighting the objects that are the subject of the five large photographs that occupy the central space of the gallery. The rather small objects – a purse, a syringe, a heart-shaped vessel, a bottle and a comb – which all have an intimate connection to O’Dwyer’s past, are given an almost monumental presence through the magnified scale of the photographs. Staged, named by sand-blasted words and hallowed the light of the past they seem to belong the objects are drawn from their insularity to be given a perspective.” M. Cutaya 2009
