Nuala Ní Fhlathúin Galway Based Artist

Nuala Ní Fhlathúin is from the Gaeltacht area in the West of Ireland. She received a BFA in Ceramics from the GMIT School of Art in 2008 and an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Washington in Seattle in 2011. 

Her art practice has been an investigation of material processes and procedures, a craft-led enterprise embarked upon to explore the mysterious divide between material reality and the disembodied world of abstract sequenced thought. In her practice she works directly and experimentally with materials, constructing open-ended arrangements of order and entropy, conservation and decay. She works with soil, string, fragments of paper and other cast-offs, paying attention to their distinct physical properties – their weight, their balance, their particular way of occupying space, how they impinge on each other. In exploring these dynamics her art consistently operates on the plane of the personal, the particular and the intimate - the world of cataclysmic, hairsbreadth differences, irrational attachments and temporary stop-gap measures.

Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, in Ireland, the USA and Georgia.
