Birds in Flight over Glendalough by Lorraine Hozier Byrne Irish Artist…]Wall art

My own personal favorite piece 

Raine Hozier Byrne is currently living and working in Wicklow and graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) in Visual Arts Practice. Since leaving College, exhibitions include Hard Times, which toured from Cill Railaig Gallery to Urban Retreat Gallery in Dublin. (Where she was offered and availed of a residency) Hozier Byrnes work was short-listed for the Siamsa Tire Emerging Artists Awards.

Her work has been included in many private and public collections including in government, River Deep, and the IADT president’s collection. She is currently working towards two exhibitions with the Irish Wave in Beijing, where two series, Analytic of the sublime and Critique of pure reason, will be shown in the spring of 2012.

Artist statement:
Raine Hozier Byrne’s work is composed of deconstructed elements of contemporary media images. The works explores subjectivity, identity, mass reproduction and epistemology, what we find possible to know. Appropriating found media images into elaborate collages; Hozier Byrne creates images within images, in an attempt to challenge the nature of representation, outside the constraints of its self-identified associations.

To depict contemporary iconic and even iconographic historical imagery often with a deconstructed portraiture aesthetic, the artist uses a combination of various printmaking and painting techniques. The Artist draws heavily from media, politics and history and through a multi-layer of signifiers and visual symbols, in order to weave together seemingly random elements into a cohesive whole.

Hozier Byrne’s work is an examination of Contemporary sublime and subjective perception, taking us to the limits of our understanding where the very notion of what we know slips and fragments.

I was searching through iTunes and came across this new album cover by the artist “Hozier” and thought to put this up as a little bit of research because it’s an interesting painting. Also in many ways this is a representation of what appropriation usually involves, the only research I could find is that the musicians mother (Raine Hozier- Byrne) painted this for his album, but it is an extremely pretty painting and it interests me because of the face has been removed and replaced, another example of what I am going to be trying out with my own work.

    You are such an inspiration, Raine, to women such as myself; “too old” to go back to school, still craving education and inspiration. Your collage work is astounding. You are proof positive that artistic expression doesn’t have to be defined by drawing or painting skills. I have many ideas, not a shred of conventional artistic ability – your work has prompted me both to explore other forms of artistry AND go back to school! You are clearly a wonderful mother, too. 😊 Our children are our finest works of art.
