LISA GAWKE

IRELAND

After studying fine art in sculpture and textiles at Crawford College of Art and Design, in 1990, she returned to education in 2016 where she received a BA in contemporary art from Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology Centre for Creative Arts. Her work deals with the journey between loss and renewal. She considers the idea of destroying to bring about something new and amended. She uses unconventional materials and tools that are traditionally used for something else entirely. The blackness is a significate part of her work representing our perceptions of night and its hidden refuge. Embracing and celebrating the darkness becomes a space to meditate and heal. She invites the viewer to contemplate the strengths and vulnerabilities of the human condition.
