Isabel Nolan (b. 1974, Ireland) has an expansive practice that incorporates sculptures, paintings, textile works, photographs, writing and works on paper. Her subject matter is similarly comprehensive, taking in cosmological phenomena,
religious reliquaries, Greco-Roman sculptures and literary/historical figures, examining the behaviour of humans and animals alike. Recent solo exhibitions include Another View from Nowhen, London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE (2017); Calling on Gravity, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2017); The weakened eye of day, which toured from the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2014) to Mercer Union, Toronto and CAG, Vancouver (2016).
