This website spans more than thirty years of Sarah Iremonger's visual art practice, covering Sarah's first paintings in the early 1990's, the conceptual work of the late 1990's, and her multidisciplinary conceptual approach since then.
Sarah Iremonger uses a multidisciplinary approach of found, created and adapted images, including photographs, murals, painting, drawing, badges, cards, digital media, video and neon in her work. Based in Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland, early work is embedded in the romantic and modernist traditions, with epic implications.
Later and recent works, include site-specific projects, which explore ideas of representation and how, as a hangover of the romantic tradition, representation perpetuates a scenario of our separation from the world around us, the nature verses culture dichotomy, but what if nature is culture and vise versa? By focusing on appropriation and adaptation of available material, this work is best described as a series of thought experiments through painting. By placing subject matter and personal artistic expression in the background, visual signifiers become hidden in a forest of post-representational camouflage.
