In the past few months, we have had a couple of new members join. Welcome to the studio, Anna Stuart, Sinead Kampff, and Holly Pickering!
Anna Stuart is a visual artist currently based in Dublin, having graduated with First Class Honours from the BA Art programme at IADT, Dun Laoghaire. Encompassing a variety of media, her practice explores a philosophy where parameters rather than outcomes are set for works. Often being described as scenarios, her works evolve together with their environment and offer a visual investigation into time, phenomena and the potential chain of actions and unknown reactions that occur when living systems come into contact. This methodology has taken many forms, including the exploration of the alchemic qualities of minerals such as salt, as well as the fabrication of a non-digital, experiential helmet. Inspired by the everyday coexistence between the human and non-human environment, Anna’s practice is driven by her fascination with time and a desire to explore new areas of art making as a way of observing and engaging with the world.
Sinead Kampff is an artist based in Dublin, Ireland. She recently graduated with a degree in Fine Art Painting from the National College of Art and Design. Her work explores the concept surrounding abandonment, which manifests mainly in the abandonment of buildings. Her practice involves painting and sculptural pieces.
Holly Pickering (b.1998) is an artist based in Dublin. Her oeuvre is concerned with interrogating language structures inherent in both the corporeal act of speech and in written material, meditating upon the physical effect of language upon the body and the relationship between language and how we navigate ourselves throughout the world. Her practice is multi-disciplinary, encompassing film, sound and sculptural installations often oriented around experimental texts and fictional narratives. Film, literary forms, and poetry are central to her practice.
