Artist in Residence Rhona Byrnes came up with the idea of Huddlewear. This was a series of clothing that was based at the headquarters Facebook Dublin. It encourages and invites people to wear and inhabit Huddlewear. In this we explore the close relationship and intimacy. It does challenge us in what we define as our space zone, it is to allow for others to enter into the space zone.
Gary used the sketch as a therapeutic way to cope with the passing of his wife.
"The great thing about the doodle is once it's down on the paper, the thought is out.
"You've got it out and can let it go. If it's a sad, negative thought - I get it down, I get it out. It kind of releases it, and then you can move on."
Gary's work is so natural and unplanned, he just thinks of a thought of that day and sketch what every flows through it. Gary shared his doodles on social media, his family kept track of his drawings after the death of his wife. It show them what his state of mind was like at that time. His drawings has inspired other people's lives in how they were feeling in the passing of a loved one and haven't been able to articulate. I can totally agree how art is very therapeutic and it's something you can do too. Pull out a sketch book and just allow your hand to move with your mind. You will not realise the potential of what art can do.
