New members for Ormond Studios

Ormond Studios is delighted to be welcoming two new members – Steven Maybury and Eoin O’Dowd.

Steven Maybury is a Dublin based artist who’s practice investigates the temporality of material. His focus is on our relationship with the temporary as a way to reflect upon the beauty and the energy rooted in the rhythms and cycles of our surroundings, of our consciousness, and of our interrelationships with the world.

Eoin O’Dowd uses a variety of media in his practice including paper and video collage and sculpture. “Much of my work lends heavily from an ongoing fascination with mythological narrative and folkloric custom and the use of ceremonial and sacred objects in their relation to modernity. These are experiments attempting to correlate what is perceived as sacred within modern sensibilities. As of late, work has focus on the creative method rather than it’s outcome”.

Ormond Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
