Artist Ursula Burke will discuss the influences on her work and her creative process throughout her career.
Irish visual artist Ursula Burke works in porcelain sculpture, embroidery and drawing. ‘A False Dawn’ exhibition is the culmination of Ursula’s recent work. Much of her art practice deals with issues of representation and identity, exploring abuses of power in both social and political sphere.
Having worked for many years in Belfast, Ursula often takes a post-conflict Northern Irish context as a critical point of departure to approach international concerns. Her beautiful artworks act as a bridge to connect the Classical ‘ideal’ with the ‘reality’ of today’s world.
