This survey exhibition of photographic objects by Roseanne Lynch traces her practice from 2013 to present. It is an elucidation of her visual vocabularies and strategies, and her critical concerns regarding photography as a medium. Visual thoughtfulness and attention to materials come together with considerations of structure and form. Works centre on constructions with elements combined in the darkroom and studio. Equally important is an attentiveness to architectural details and visual investigations of environments. Vital are transitions between light and dark; where sculptural forms appear in tonal fields conforming to her framing and spatial arrangements. From photograms and assemblies to particulars of buildings, Roseanne generates new photographic objects with the compelling question: what would that look like as a photograph?
She lives and works in Cork.
Roseanne Lynch lectures in photography at CIT Crawford College of Art and Design and at Cork Centre for Architectural Education.
