Falling Between Two Stools
Craig comes from a fourth generation farming family in Co.Wexford. Using his background in farming he began to develop the work ‘Falling Between Two Stools’.
The phrase echoes through the lives of the men and women form his local community who are directly or indirectly marked by farming the land in an ever-changing social and political landscape.
It documents the joys and challenges faced as they struggle to balance tradition, careers and relationships. In addition, it recognises those who no longer work the land, leasing it to a younger generation.
With this work, Craig has provided a portrait of a community, and their connection to the landscape that they have belonged to all their lives. It is strengthened by their voice and the honesty of their words.
