Róisín Lewis

After graduating from NCAD with a First Class Honors degree in fine art in 1996 Róisín went on to pursue postgraduate studies in fine art at the University of Ulster and in multimedia systems in Trinity College Dublin.

She has had solo exhibitions at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery and the Ashford Gallery in Dublin, at the Proposition Gallery and the Old Museum Arts Centre in Belfast, and at the Roscommon Arts Centre. Her work has been included in a number of international exhibitions including the Drawing Centre, New York, The Berkeley Art Museum, California and Yanagisawa Gallery, Tokyo.

The general focus of Róisín’s work is the artistic analysis of perception and in particular, the correlation between spatial and temporal experience and the process of drawing. Working increasingly from memory rather than from observation, past experiences that resurface through the process of drawing in the studio form the starting point for current projects. Her work is not restricted to any medium or material conditions and to date has found form as works on paper, installation, performance and multimedia collaborations.
