“Art is not what you see,
but what you make others see.”
– Edgar Degas
Lorraine Hogan is a visual artist based in Cork, Ireland. She graduated from Crawford Art College with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art. She graduated top of her class and was awarded the Cork Film Award for her Degree show in Crawford. Lorraine has exhibited her art work internationally and throughout Ireland. Her printmaking work has featured on billboards in the UK and Ireland. Lorraine’s work combines photography, printmaking, painting, video installations and sound.
My practice is multidisciplinary and the art work is nearly always a response to the environment. My paintings contemplate the fragmentation of time and biodiversity. They are built up of geometric shapes, elements of repetition, pattern and vivid colour.
When the government introduced travel restrictions it gave me the opportunity to see nature around me in a new way. The notion of stopping and seeing how importance biodiversity is, is where the series ‘Yellow Halo’ began.
