HANNAH LLOYD

Hannah Lloyd

Hannah Lloyd is originally from the UK but has been based in Dublin since 2014. A self-taught artist and illustrator, Hannah’s work focuses on still life with recurring motifs of cats, plants, flowers, pottery, and interiors. Her recent paintings have been of arranged flowers, exploring how they represent an attempt to capture life and fix it in place for a time so we can admire it, even though we know the flowers won’t last long. In that way, flowers represent how we sometimes choose experience pleasure and seek beauty even in the face of death.

Hannah works in oils, acrylic, collage, and watercolour, and her media and methods are heavily influenced by the fact that she balances her practice with a young family and a career outside of her art.

HANNAH NÍ MHAONAIGH

Hannah Ní Mhaonaigh painting

Hannah Ní Mhaonaigh is a Dublin based artist. In her practice, Ní Mhaonaigh creates expanded paintings by using oil & acrylic paint on various mediums including linen, chipboard shapes, found mahogany door frames and architectural wooden panels. This painting process involves removing, sanding back and building up layers of paint repeatedly to create abstract artworks that sit somewhere between painting and sculpture. Her playful use of materials enable colour, shape and texture to be the primary driver in her work. Her repetitive practice of overpainting/paring back leads to an intangible honesty and energy in the successful paintings. The ones that managed to make-it.

Her most recent shows include: Forum Atelier Now, Dublin, Summer Show, Grove Collective, London and will also has upcoming Solo Show in Garter Lane, Waterford next month along with work being exhibited in the RHA annual, Dublin 2021.

ISHMAEL CLAXTON

Ishmael Photo
Ishmael has been taking photographs for eight years. His work combines elements from his academic, personal and professional background in mathematics, art history, fine art installation and costume design. He weaves his influences — from Surrealism, Pop Art, Italian Futurist and Afro-Futurist movements — together to give unique form to his vision. This results in works that are both colourful and spiritual with surrealist undertones.

His images contain moments of harmony within conflicting compositional elements. He fuses new and old styles in his work and plays with layers of film and digital photography and printing.
