Sometimes as we slump into our beds after a hard days work, in a job less appealing, or as ideal as you had once envisaged.

It is easy to get lost in the day dreams of ‘what ifs?’. 

At other times, sitting on a bus gazing out the fogged up windows, and watching the rush hour traffic, we are drawn towards to the niggling thoughts of what we once envisaged for ourselves. 

While absolutely starving and digging into last nights curry in the fridge, we are also struck with consuming mundane anxieties of what we hope we can achieve in the upcoming weeks. 

The heart of this 'Peachy' involves culminating the thoughts, hopes and dreams of the individual. What we will rely on, is the sentiments of those who wish to participate,  writing anonymously, their hopes, dreams or deepest thoughts and placing them in a box. This will drive the direction of the project. 

The box will be left outdoors in March for the public to use as they wish, and to bring together a body of thoughts in one place. 

We will be exhibiting the work across four floors of the Temple Bar Art Gallery on the 14th,15th and 16th of May. 

The next step is to transform these thoughts into art and design as interpreted by others, to signify how we all can draw beauty from our own minds and desires. 

By displaying the art alongside the modest scraps of paper, we hope to exhibit the vibrancy and fascinating thoughts of the individual. 

The assembled body of work will provide a sense of unity to those who may need it, as we all do at times, some inspiration, and also solace that they are not alone. 

By delving into the innermost psyche of participants without any need for identity, we will get an honest overview of what we and others strive towards daily. 

We will assemble a body of thoughts and unify those who believe they are isolated, in a quest for happiness or simply just need reminding them that the art , beauty and diversity of our individual mind is to be relished in.

What Peachy achieves is an assembly of these thoughts with a twist. By transforming the submissions into art we give a sense of beauty to something that can often be viewed negatively, and allowing it to be viewed in a different light.

In this way Peachy connects to Aware Ireland and their work, and therefore were always a fitting candidate for us to work with. 

Peachy is about the mundane and the fantastic thoughts of individuals, and making them magnificent.

It is also a chance to showcase the artistic talent we have right here in Ireland and unify it with a universal message.

The proceeds of the exhibition and sale of the pieces will be all in aid of Aware Ireland.

We have an incredible line up of varied artists, who are all set to respond to the thoughts collected like:
