Studio resident from 2019- ongoing:
Lisa O'Donnell is an Irish artist based in London. Her practice investigates how contemporary figurative painting strategies can expand marginalised histories of women. Utilising feminist and revisionist methodology, the paintings use archival photographs and research as starting points, whilst considering what the methods and strategies of history writing can offer a contemporary history painting practice. In 2010 she completed her BA Fine Art at Centre for Creative Arts and Media, Ireland, 2010 and MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London, 2013. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art where her project focuses on ground-breaking 20th-century Irish women histories. She was one of the inaugural residents at Anderson Contemporary starting in 2019 and in 2014 she completed a three-month residency supported by Galway County Council Arts Office at the NARS Foundation, New York. Recent solo exhibitions include 'Stranded' at the House of Saint Barnabas, London and 'Models For Movers' at New York University, 2015 and she has participated in numerous group exhibitions in the UK, USA and Ireland.
