Joanna Kidney (Ierland)

Joanna Kidney was born in Dublin and currently lives in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. Through drawing, painting and installation, her work reflects on ideas of temporality and the interrelationship between living matter. It seeks to make some sense of this existance- how complex, all encompassing yet vulnerable and tiny our lives are in this vast universe.
