About the Artist

Caitriona Ni Threasaigh Artist

Caitríona Ní Threasaigh graduated from NCAD, Dublin in 2004 with an honours degree in Fine Art Painting.

While in college she experimented and explored many forms of art-making such as photography, performance, installation, sculpture, print and painting. Colour, texture and layering are vital to her work, whatever the medium.

Caitríona’s graduation show gained a special mention from Aidan Dunne, Irish Times, and she won the Emerging Artist award in Claremorris Open, COE, the same year.  She also exhibited in EVA, Limerick in 2006.

Caitríona’s paintings range from abstract to landscape to surrealist. The characters found in her paintings are created by using the simple childhood drawing device of ‘taking a line for a walk’, a definition Paul Klee used to explain what drawing was. Working instinctively and using colour and line as the impulse, this work uncovers an imaginative environment populated with figures that range from the grotesque, sinister and distorted to the appealing, mischievous and playful. These characters provide a means to encounter the absurd and fantastical elements of the creative imagination and act as an entry point into the unconscious mind’s way of dealing with issues such as love, loss, fear and death. Caitríona’s sculptures are created in the same stream-of-consciousness way using a wide variety of found objects ranging from fabric, bone, hair, gems, and more.

Caitríona has travelled far and wide and has exhibited her work in Ireland, New York and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. She has also worked in other creative fields, namely dyeing and aging costumes for film and theatre. She is also a professional actor and her passion for creativity and drama is evident in all of her artistic pursuits.
