Originally from Northern Ireland Roisín McGuigan lives and works in Dublin. Her practice is an auto-ethnographic reflection on place and the reverberations of growing up near the Northern Irish border, explored through research, memory and anecdote, and realised through painting, sculpture and text.
A graduate of NCAD, Burren College of Art and Turps Art School, London, her work has been exhibited at home and abroad and will feature in Rua Red’s 2023 Spring Open: Displacement and Belonging – Home. Roisín is the recipient of the inaugural Expanded Print Residency at Graphic Studio Dublin 2022-23, and received The Arts Council Agility Award 2022, Dublin City Council Arts Bursary 2020, as well as bursaries from Kerry County Council and Creative Ireland.
