Suzy O’ Mullane

 

Most of the work I make reflect my current interests and/or concerns. My current series examines my perception of our existential whereabouts.

 

Suzy O’ Mullane is a visual artist, based in Cork, Ireland and the South of France. She has been practicing and exhibiting consistently in Dublin, London, NY, Berlin, Seattle, Miami, Toronto and LA since 1996. Throughout her practice, she has developed and employs multiple encoded forms that have become personal allegorical references. Her work conceptualises emotional experience, personal and societal identity, migration/travel and memory relating to a particular identity, place, memory, or personal connections
