Tess Leak is a Baltimore-based artist who has just completed an Artist Residency at Uillinn: West Cork Art Centre.  Tess’s solo exhibition I shall make for my own castle is a culmination of work developed during her residency comprising large scale ‘emergency drawings’, sound collaborations and a collection of ’42 unfinished books that would be brilliant’.

Tess has also commissioned composer Justin Grounds to create a piece of music for strings, bassoon and the phono-fiddle that she recently inherited from her grand uncle, music hall performer Frank Clifton. The Vespertine Quintet, of which Tess is a member, will premier the work, also titled I shall make for my own castle, at the opening of this show on Friday 8th May.

Tess graduated from the B.A. in Visual Art (Dublin Institute of Technology), Sherkin Island in 2009 and is currently working with Marie Brett on ‘Museum of Miniature: The Islands’, a touring art-work which involves the communities of the seven West Cork Islands along with other international off-shore Islands and is supported by Cork County Council and West Cork Arts Centre.
