TINA DEMPSEY

Exploring places, wandering, walking, gathering treasures, artefacts and all manner of flotsam and jetsam are the starting points for creating my collections. Foraged items then sit with me in the studio, allowing time and space to respond via drawings, sculpture, prints, paintings and collage. These collections offer a new angle from which to learn about a place, observe and ultimately suggest new ways of looking. Equal importance is given to each object, removing any hierarchy. The Wunderkammer is an important context for my work, with its ethos of using intriguing collections as a way of learning about and understanding the world.
