Who am I?I still am an artist
Laura is a visual artist working in drawing, painting, installation, video, and text. A graduate of both the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and Royal College of Art, London, she is a recipient of the Visual Arts Bursary Award (Arts Council of Ireland) for 2021-22.
She was shortlisted for the Zurich Portrait Prize in 2020 and recent exhibitions include participation in the 39th EVA International with ‘Fantasy Farming’ (2020) at Limerick City Gallery of Art, the site-specific mountain based artwork ‘Cosmic Granny’ (2019) in Inch, Co. Kerry, and ‘Lucian’s Neighbours’ (2018) at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. She received a 2021 Golden Fleece Award to create a studio on her father’s land in Kerry. This will take time and patience.
Recent shows include; ‘I have made a place’, Crawford Art Gallery Art, Cork, 2021, curated by Michael Waldron and ‘A growing Enquiry – Art & Agriculture, reconciling values’, at the RHA gallery Dublin, 2022 curated by Patrick T Murphy. She is currently exhibiting at Roscommon Art Centre in ‘An Animate Land’, with artists Marion Balfe and Miriam O’Connor and will present a solo exhibition at the Wexford Art Centre (as part of the Emergence Visual Art Award 2019) in October 2022. She will participate in a group show at Tipperary Art Centre with artists Orla Barry and Chloe McKeown also in October 2022. In May this year Ormston House Limerick took Laura’s work to Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm, where she presented a series of new drawings, an audio and video work.
So you can see she is fairly busy. She is 38.
