Ruth O’Donnell’s images, which have a contemplative quality, contain references to the interface of art, history, decoration, and narrative with her own life. Educated at NUI, Galway, and the Institut Saint Luc, Brussels, she is also a member of the Graphic Studio, Dublin. Her work has been widely exhibited in Ireland and internationally and she has recently been awarded a residency in the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris for three months from January to March 2014.
