Sculpture In The Snow

For her degree show she was awarded the Cork Art Society, Student of the Year Award 2015, CIT Science Week Award, which resulted in a solo exhibition, CIT Purchase Prize and a post grad resident CCAD award 2015.

She was also awarded a 12 month residency with Backwater Artist’s Group. She is currently a member of Cork Printmakers.

Pauline’s practice involves a deconstruction and representation of obsolete everyday objects, reducing them to basic components and reconfiguring the constituent parts to transform the materiality of the objects in a manner that defeats their obsolescence. Through the medium of video, projection, installation and printmaking, I seek to explore and interrogate the properties of these materials applying light as a tool for drawing transitions from the familiar to the unfamiliar. This excites me and informs the ambiguous reading of my work.

The materiality and the process of my practice or interrogations play with the notion of creating temporary situations using shadow and light, reflections and refractions through the combination of purposefully sourced materials and curiosity.
