Solo Irish ’16 | Jenny McConnell at Nordic Makers


Nordic Makers is launching its new bimonthly exhibition series entitled Solo Irish ’16 on 04 May, 2016 with the solo exhibition of County Donegal artist Jenny McConnell. Solo Irish ‘16 is a series of solo exhibitions focused on showcasing some of Ireland’s most talented young artists.

Jenny McConnell was born and raised in the Irish countryside of County Donegal. McConnell made the move to Belfast to complete a degree in Fine & Applied Art at the University of Ulster. After graduating in 2012, she moved to Dublin to continue her art practice, where she lived and worked until 2014 when she immigrated to Australia for one year. It was not until McConnell’s time in Australia that she began to fully appreciate and value the rugged beauty of her native landscape. This realisation has greatly influenced her transition from her earlier figurative work into abstract landscapism.
