The Boon Projects stall is a selection of work from our artist collective, with a focus on the work of Emma O’Hara and Deirdre Breen.
Emma O’Hara is a Wexford-born artist based in Cork City. Emma graduated in Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA in Printmaking and Contemporary Practice. in 2016, she was awarded the Cork Printmakers bursary. Emma O’Hara’s screen prints captures a perception of deconstructed landscapes and urban cityscapes. O’Hara celebrates common objects and environments from everyday life. The artist believes there is no higher hierarchy of culture and her inspiration is borrowed from any source of the mundane influenced by the pop culture movement. Emma uses colour to highlight the disparity between structural form and the reimagined human intervention.
Deirdre Breen is a printmaker and designer who makes screen prints and geometric compositions. Her work explores the interplay between solid and space through studies in colour and form. Deirdre takes inspiration from curious objects and environments. Her work celebrates abstraction, gradation and symmetry.
