BIO: Mairead Dunne


Mairead Dunne (Offaly, 1982) is a visual artist based in Belfast. She graduated from the National College of Art and Design Dublin and received a Masters of Fine Art from the University of Ulster Belfast. Dunne has had several solo exhibitions including the Offaly Arts Council Solo Exhibition Award 2010 and has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. She has completed international residencies in Cyprus College of Art and Camac Centre d'Art in France. She most recently completed a residency at the Red Gate Art centre in Beijing. Dunne’s practice investigates the playfulness and strangeness of childhood where the work often adopts an unsettling child's fantasy environment. Inspiration behind the work can be found in old Folklore and illustration and her interest in Victorian photography.
