Miranda Blennerhassett’s work examines the relationship between architecture and ornamentation. This wall-painting is based on the study of traditional knitting patterns undertaken while on a recent residency in Iceland. It is also inspired by the writings of Gottfried Semper in The Four Elements of Architecture where Semper discusses the use of hanging fabrics and weavings as the early forerunners of walls in domestic structures.
Miranda Blennerhassett has been a studio member at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios for the last four years. Recent commissions include the RHA Annual Commission and Royal College of Surgeons Ireland Commission. Recent exhibitions have taken place in SIM Gallery, Reykjavik; Luan Gallery, Athlone; TULCA, Galway; Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda; Suttie Arts Space, Aberdeen.
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios’ Atrium connects the public gallery to the individual artists’ private working spaces. Current TBG+S studio artists are invited to use the Atrium to test experimental work or exhibit ideas and artworks in progress.
