Lisa McCleary Presents: I'll Be In Touch

Lisa McCleary Class of 2010
Lisa McCleary Class of 2010

Lisa McCleary, Class of 2010,  has returned to Ireland after a decade of living and working overseas in Sydney and New York. In 2018 she completed her MFA Degree at Parsons, The New School, NYC. McCleary has exhibited internationally with previous solo exhibitions in Sydney, Mexico, and New York City. Her art is currently on view at the Irish Consulate, New York City. McCleary’s work has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition as part of the Smithsonian Museum's National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC. In 2020, McCleary was included in The UK Sunday Times article ‘30 under 30: Ireland’s most promising artists.’ In 2023, since her return to Ireland, McCleary has been selected to exhibit her work at the Royal Hibernian Academy’s 193rd Summer Annual, Dublin, Ireland, and the London Art Biennale, Kensington, London.

I'll Be In Touch will be McCleary’s first solo exhibition in Ireland and will classify an exploration into the last 4 years of her material practice, delving into elements of painting, drawing and tapestry.

Addressing mediated corporeality, her practice is anchored by the embodiment of touch. McCleary’s repertoire consists of a growing collection of works which will be on display at “An Tigin”, Greystones. McCleary employs a layered artistic process to create surrealist distortions and anthropomorphic beings. Her practice explores the intersection of vulnerability and resilience, materiality, absurdity, desire and the tactile.

She presents reality as something that is not fixed but in a constant process of change. McCleary’s artworks capture a vital moment in which layered elements, emotions, materials, and processes come together to create an aesthetic energy with suggestive being and force.
