Devlin Shea

Artist Profile

 

Devlin Shea describes her artworks as ‘places where I work through impressions, images, emotional experiences and visual intensities.’ In her often large-scale work, she focusses on quick gestures, stolen glances and intimate moments, cropping her images down to enhance the intensity of feeling these images provoke. Through depicting these snapshots of human relationships, her work delves into human intimacy and psychology.

Devlin Shea gained an MFA, Slade School of Fine Art, London (2016) and a BFA, Painting and Video, Alfred University, Alfred, New York (1998). Select solo exhibitions include Third Eye, Surplus Space, Wuhan, China (2017), Contours of a migration, So lon, Sauða rkro kur, Iceland (2013), and Googled Emotional Connections, Carina Björck Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden (2010). Recent group exhibitions include Bloomberg New Contemporaries, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Block 336, London (2017 - 2018), These Rotten Words, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff (2017) and Hands On, Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong (2017).
