Joanne Boyle graduated from Dun Laoghaire IADT in 2009 with an Honours Degree in Visual Arts Practice and was chosen for the inaugural Studio & Mentorship Award by
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Co Council. She exhibits in solo and group shows and in 2011 received An Artlinks Bursary and was selected to be part of an Artlinks Initiative
curated by Cliodhna Shaffrey.
Boyle's involved and tactile approach to materials, with its implications of cathartic release and metaphysical intensity, generates images that, packed and agitated as
they are, ultimately function as investigations into the sublime.
Joan Clancy Gallery are proud to host Macalla a solo exhibition of new and recent works by Joanne Boyle.
Mentored by artist Sinead Ní Mhaonaigh, Imeall, directed by Maggie Breathnach for Red Shoe Productions, charts the development of work from its original concept in Joanne
Boyle's artist's studio in Dublin to Joan Clancy Gallery in An Rinn near Dungarvan in Co Waterford, where it opens for exhibition to the public on Friday March 9th at 8pm.
With music by Hugh O'Carroll, Ryland Teifi and Evan Grace from Mendocino the band, the evening promises to have the wow factor with camera, lights and action.
The show will feature on Imeall, TG4's arts and culture programme on Thursday March 22nd, 2012.
