“I cast a net over an ocean of experience and extract my truths through variegated metaphor.”
Elaine Mcginn lives and works on the North east coast in Ireland. Emerging from the debris of social, political and cultural change, Mcginn entered formal art training in her mid thirties, where she gained a BA Hons in Fine and applied arts from the Ulster of University and went on to study on the MSC Art Therapy programme in Queens University. Inspired by the process of Jungian individuation and informed by the circuitous nature of life events, Mcginn cultivates an essence of emotional release and forces the locks on resurgence through art practice.
Mcginn creates time-based art works that encompass movement, object, active associative materials and sound, alongside traditional drawing practices. At present she showcases her work internationally through solo and group exhibition, gallery, events, projects and collaborations.
