Eilis O’Connell RHA
Award winning Irish sculptor Eilis O’Connell maintains her studio practice along with large scale commissioned works. She has worked on over 30 permanent site-specific public projects in the UK and mainland Europe.
Recipient of the Rome Fellowship and the PSI New York fellowship, she continues to experiment with new materials using metal in unique ways. She is interested in the behaviour of matter and has collaborated with scientists using the confocal miscroscope at Trinity College, Dublin to produce a new body of work about the internal complexity of the human body.
