Carol Anne Connolly is a visual artist from the West of Ireland, based in Co. Cork. She is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, NUI Galway.
Connolly’s visual art practice is primarily concerned with cultural and social ideas that relate to ‘place’ in contemporary society. She draws from a variety of media, strategies and techniques to create work that is often driven by site-specific enquiry, historical research and community engagement. In considering landscape as a reflection of our relationship and attitude towards nature, Connolly, through an artistic lens seeks to investigate, represent or re-imagine contemporary ideas that relate to our environs.
Viewfinder is a photographic artwork that employs an architectural form to frame a natural composition. The play between the interior/exterior spaces operates in a way to draw the eye to look closer. Responding to the notion of intimacy and civic space, the artwork invites us to consider new perspectives of our shared surroundings, and our place within them.
