Michelle Gallagher

I am interested in the representation of women and the feminine, inspiration comes from observations in my own life and the lives of the women in my family and society at large.

My art practice is firmly rooted in the processes of making, the materials I use dictate and guide my work directly, I view the materials as a partner in the realization of the idea, a collaboration.

Which personality are you?
Our public and private faces and personalities. What do we show and what do we hide. The empty compartment is for the viewer to decide what face/ personality would they choose? Irish playwright Brian Friel wrote “ Philadelphia here I come” one of the characters has two actors playing his public and private thoughts.This idea of our public and private personality was a trigger for this artwork.
