Patricia Stacke-kelly - Ireland

Patricia Stacke-Kelly – Ireland - Untitled

Patricia’s art practice has always involved pushing boundaries with materials. She is passionate about the process of transforming waste materials, found objects, organic materials and paint into a language which is tactile, visual, visceral and evokes questions. In the process of transformation, the materials take on new meaning, they hover on the edge of liminal space allowing themselves to suggest new possibilities for growth and change. Within this strange terrain Patricia grapples with fundamental questions. How do we, as individuals, find a path in this new realm? How do we deal with our isolation from others? How do we cope with our vulnerabilities, our desires, our dreams, and our flights of madness? Can we find comfort and a sense of meaning in the midst of this?

Patricia’s work is deeply personal and as such it is deeply universal. Life, death, decay, social exclusion and the human condition are recurring themes which inform her work.  Her artistic influences are numerous including Anselm Kiefer, Louise Bourgeois and Antoni Tapies.

Having graduated in Fine Art from Dublin Institute of Technology in 1996 she continued her studies in Crawford College of Art in Cork qualifying as an Art Therapist. She runs an Art Therapy practice from her studio as well as teaching and facilitating workshops. Her work is in private and corporate collections in Ireland and Internationally.
