Childishly relived in its shafts of light and dark corridors, the home may take on many manifestations. The house, a physical shelter. The home, an emotional outlet. Consistently drawn back to base, to her home, Catriona Osborne continues to find sources of her artistic practice within its walls, extending beyond its boundaries. Studying the reciprocal value with its inhabitants. Playing with the duality of truth and falsities, Osborne tracks memories and childish imaginings. Blurring the lines between public and private. Drawing on little fascinations she produces work in a variety of mediums ranging from pinhole photography to film and from poetry to plaster casts.
Catriona Osborne graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) in 2018, after studying a BA in Sculpture and Combined Media. On returning to her home town Cork, she took up a studio space in Sample-Studios and joined TACTIC as resident curator.
