Opening Reception Thursday 1 December, 6 – 8pm

Róisín O’Sullivan’s practice stems from her experience of nature. O’Sullivan makes paintings and objects that reflect the natural world around her, taking a deep interest in collecting and responding to materials such as wood and leaves. Her work slips into abstraction through intuition within the studio process, creating curious painted, carved, and burned marks.

The exhibition I See Skies features a new series of paintings that began at the Tony O’Malley residency in Callan, County Kilkenny. There, the artist spent over a year immersed in nature, embracing each intimate surface in the studio as an emotional response to the complexities of life.

Róisín O’Sullivan is an artist based in Callan, County Kilkenny, and Cork City. O’Sullivan has presented her work in exhibitions throughout Ireland and overseas, including institutions such as the Rathfarnham Castle, Office of Public Works (upcoming solo show, 2023), the Butler Gallery, Kilkenny and Lethaby Gallery, London. She recently completed the Tony O’Malley residency, administered by the Royal Hibernian Academy. She holds an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, and a BA in Fine Art from the Centre for Creative Arts & Media, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. She is a recipient of multiple awards from the Arts Council, including the Visual Arts Bursary 2022. Her work is held in private and public collections, including the Office of Public Works.
