Janet Mullarney

One of Ireland’s most respected sculptors and a member of Aosdana, Mullarney spends her time between Ireland and Italy.

“Her sculptures are a little like Angela Carter’s novels, where the everyday and the ordinary can suddenly plummet into the surreal and the mythic. Tables and stairs, trolleys and mattresses are the props that carry extraordinary characters.  Subjects mined from the natural world and anthropomorphized to play out human joy and human tragedy.”  Patrick T.Murphy.

She has exhibited extensively in both Ireland and abroad and has held solo exhibitions at venues including Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; the Royal Hibernian Academy; Crawford Municipal Gallery; Limerick City Gallery; Museo de Arte Contemporanea, Oaxaca, Mexico; and Casa Masaccio Arte Contemporanea, San Giovanni Valdarno.
