Susan Connolly

The area of investigation within Connolly’s practice explores the ‘extendable paint surface’ and the provisionality this causes within traditional theories of medium and specificity. By asking questions of painting the concern lies in creating a space for conversation within the possibilities of the medium, rather than a model or originality for producing painted objects anew. Absent-ness and object-ness become reoccurring themes within the visual outcomes. Most of Connolly’s recent work has looked at the slippage in materials and how this causes surface tension and doubt. Not quite a painting but also not identifiable as something else either.

Susan Connolly is a graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design, she holds an MFA from the University of Ulster, a first class honours MA from ACW, NCAD, Dublin and is currently a PhD candidate at Ulster University having been awarded the VC Scholarship.
