Lisa O’Donnell - Histrionics

This body of work was created during O’Donnell’s residency at Anderson Contemporary over the past two years. It presents ‘contemporary history painting’ in order to make visible feminist interpretations of 20th-century Irish women’s history.

The paintings use archival material as a starting point which stands in as a sign of the accepted documents of history. Properties of the photograph are mimicked such as framing and cut-off compositions as well as tone and contrast
