Ellen Rose Wallace – Graduate Residency Awardee 2021

Ellen-Rose Wallace is the Ormond Art Studios Graduate Residency Awardee for 2021!

Ellen-Rose Wallace is a visual artist working across sculpture, lens based media, performance and sound art to reflect on ideas of time, passage and place. Working between her home in Roscommon and Limerick City, Ellen-Rose is a recent graduate of the Limerick School of Art and Design’s Sculpture and Combined Media programme, and is a member of the Miscreating Sculpture Collective.

Through her practice, she explores experiential time in relation to narrative; paying close attention to cycles in nature and weather, often framed through misused or displaced objects. Focusing on the separation of time as is counted from time that is experienced, her work often takes the form of unending, unfinished, or cyclical narrative structures.

Recently, her work has reflected on paradoxical impressions of time, as well as the contradictory sense of transition vs stasis that has been highlighted by the pandemic. Within her work, there is an emphasis on human presence and absence, while the things we leave behind or unnoticed are placed at the centre.

We are all very excited to have Ellen-Rose as part of the studio for the coming weeks – there are social media take overs, artist talks, and Wallace’s solo exhibition all coming this autumn.

Ormond Art 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 Art 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.
