Within my recent work I explore the fleeting nature of our experiences of life; present in just a moment, and then gone; everything and then nothing. I address the ephemeral quality of the human experience and our quest to find meaning within it.
Born in Wexford, Sinéad received a degree in architecture from DIT (1996) and an MSc in Architecture: environmental studies from CAT, Wales (2008). Her design practice focused on creating symbiotically and in connection with natural living systems. She found that in order to understand what it is to connect with our environment she needed to truly experience it on a more fundamental, emotional and spiritual level, so in 2008 she began to travel and study extensively; focusing on meditation, ritual and shamanic/indigenous ceremony in Central and South America, and India. Also studying and practicing conscious dance; learning to understand connection somatically; through felt experience. On this journey she began to combine painting and dance, and use installation as a means of expressing her experiences. In her current work as a visual artist Sinéad explores themes of disconnection and emergent language of reconnection through a daily conscious practice of meditation and movement in combination with painting, installation and video.
