“Labour of Love is autobiographical, each of my sculptures tell a story and each story expresses an experience I had. I love stone, I enjoy the process of carving…It is a slow process but allows me to bring a part of myself into the sculpture, it is a labour of love.”
– Nuala Early (August 2018)
Nuala Early graduated as a mature student in 2010 with a BA Hons Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone, University of Dundee, Scotland. As a Fine Art student she spent her time experimenting with various materials and sculptural processes but it was the medium of stone and hand carving she felt most at home with.
Since returning to Ireland Nuala has worked as a sculpture assistant in Stone Symposium in Clones and Kirkudbright, Scotland, and as an assistant to Martha Quinn, Stone Sculptor in Co Sligo. Nuala’s previous exhibitions include: ‘Sculpture in Context’, Botanic Gardens Dublin, ‘Form’ Ballymaloe Cork, Carton House, Kildare, Listoke House, Drogheda and recently ‘Orientation’ in the Droichead Arts Centre. This is Nuala’s first solo exhibition.
