God Awful Love: Exploring Sarah Creighton-Keogh and Rachel Kenny’s Artistic x Poetry Connection

Written by Robert Byrne All Rights Reserved © Void Magazine.

Well, here we are again. The big Feb 14th… love is in the air and so and so but I’m here to tell you there’s a stirring new project on the horizon that’s set to take you on a journey through the highs, lows, and everything in between of love. It’s called “God Awful Love,” and it’s a collaboration between two powerhouses: writer Sarah Creighton Keogh, known for her work in our magazine and Ethereal magazine, and visual artist Rachel Kenny (who we have previously featured), who snagged the Graphic Studio Dublin Graduate Award in 2023. Together, they’re diving deep into the essence of love and loss, offering a unique perspective through the eyes of women.

Sarah Creighton Keogh isn’t afraid to tackle love from all angles, especially from a queer viewpoint. Her writing breaks down barriers, shining a light on the diverse forms love takes that often get overlooked. Keogh’s words are raw and real, capturing the messy, beautiful, and sometimes painful emotions that come with love.

But the magic really kicks in when Keogh’s writing meets Rachel Kenny’s visual art. Kenny’s toolbox includes mesmerizing techniques like cyanotype printing and delicate paper-making, all infused with the essence of nature. Her use of cyanotype, a process that relies on sunlight, adds an element of surprise and spontaneity to her illustrations, mirroring the unpredictable nature of love itself. Together, their collaboration transforms words into a visual feast, drawing readers into an immersive experience.

Keogh and Kenny bring their own perspectives and mediums to the table, creating a dynamic duo that mirrors the complexities of human connection. Scheduled for release during the summer of 2024, “God Awful Love” promises a journey beyond the usual boundaries, offering a rich and diverse exploration of the human heart. So as Valentine’s Day approaches, why not celebrate love in all its forms with “God Awful Love”?
