Attracta (originally from Sligo, Ireland) is a graduate of NCAD, Dublin, in Fine Art Painting (2009). Her works are collected by the OPW, Dept of Foreign Affairs, The Central Bank and many private collectors and has been selected for exhibitions in both nationally and internationally.
Attracta had a subtle minimalistic approach. Her work reflects concepts of identity and explores the painting process used to distort, transform and interpret ideas that can only be realized in painting. She creates intense personal moments by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. By applying abstraction, she makes work that deals with the documentation of events questioning how they can be presented. The results are then deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and multiple interpretations are created.
Attracta is a co founder of Ballyrogan House and lives and works on site.
