Phoebe Kelly-McDonnell is a Dublin based painter. Her practice is based on the active observation of the everyday, focusing on the complexities and wonder (a word intended to encompass awe and horror as well as joy) of daily existence. Through colour, gesture and form, she tries to communicate what it is to live in an impermanent body within an inherently uncertain and ever changing environment. Her works are made via a combined process of writing, drawing and painting and draw upon personal observations, poetry, film and found imagery.
