    About the Artist

    Clare Lyons (b.1993) is a visual artist and photographer working between Dublin and Belfast. She holds an MFA in Photography from the Belfast School of Art in Ulster University.

    Clare’s practice finds its concern in the tactile nature of the photographic image. Emphasising the materiality of the photograph, she explores themes of memory, trauma and her personal struggles with mental illness. Considering the photograph as an object is integral to Clare's practice, and she has strived to develop methodologies which seek to draw attention to this through crafting, experimental printmaking, and working with sculptural processes. Often, for Clare, the photograph is not "enough" and additional interventions must be made with and upon the surface of the image to tease out the difficult topics explored in her work. Clare's practice is motivated by the hope to achieve catharsis through creating and making, and also to encourage a more healthy conversation surrounding the deeply personal themes which arise in her work.

    Clare is a 2019-2020 recipient of the Universities Ireland North/South Postgraduate Scholarship, and is a studio artist at the Emerging Artist Hub in Flax Art Studios, Belfast.
