The Molesworth Gallery is delighted to present its sixth solo exhibition of the work of Maeve McCarthy. In her new body of work, the artist reflects on the relationship between place, memory, identity, and what it means to call somewhere home.
Born in 1964, Maeve McCarthy spent several years in the USA upon graduating from NCAD and has also worked in film animation in Ireland and Germany. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery, London. McCarthy has won several awards, mainly for portraiture. Her portrait of Maeve Binchy is in the collection of the National Gallery of Ireland. Her work is also held by the National Museum, the Haverty Trust, the National Self-Portrait Collection, the OPW, Fingal County Council and the Royal Dublin Society. She has been a full member of the RHA since 2007.
