Caroline Donohue (b. 1977) lives in Dublin and graduated in 2005 with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Fine Art Printmaking at the National College of Art and Design. That same year she was awarded the RDS Freyer Print Award and winner of the Graphic Studio Dublin’s Graduate Student Award where she is currently a member. Her work has been exhibited both in Ireland and internationally, and is included in various public collections such as AXA Insurance Ireland, the Office of Public Works, and Fingal County Council. Her current body of work has been inspired by an ongoing exploration of physical, psychological and poetic space. Looking to the 19th century aesthetics for her inspiration, Donohue explores notions of spectacle, our need to collect and contain objects of desire, reminiscent of the “philosophy of having”, popular at the time evident in the Cabinets of Curiosity and The Natural History Museums. Donohue is interested in the delicate point where man and the natural world co-exist or in some cases collide.
