Dee O' Shea - Installation /mixed media artists

Taken its origin from the concept of the uncanny, my work focuses on interior architectural form and how contained spaces can create a sense of unease. Concepts of reality, memory and fiction are combined and manifest through Illusion, scale and spatial articulation, creating an unfolding and adjustable space - distorting reality.  I invent, construct and stage small scale architectural models which are often suggestive of the domestic and institutional.  Evocative of the notion of the uncanny through de-familiarisation, the images I create possess elements of the everyday - undeniably familiar, yet totally absurd. Hovering between the formal and informal, my work deals with theatricality, reality and the spatially absurd. This is presented using illusion and scale which manifest through photography, video and installation
