Tara O'Donoghue 5

Beacon Brown by Tara O’Donoghue

Sherkin Island’s Community Hall has been transformed into a sensory experience of vibrant colour and sound with Tara O’Donoghue’s second annual solo show, ‘The Elephant in the Room’. Tara is a collage artist with a love of colour and texture. Elephants feature in all shapes and sizes throughout her work. Using images of this majestic animal, she has created quirky artworks of neon-coloured, dreamlike compositions, all accompanied by a sound track featuring elephants. So, to the tune of ‘Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said goodbye to the circus’, I travelled through Tara’s zany and imaginative world with a smile on my face. Her wit and humour shine through these creative collages.

Tara completed her BA Honours Degree in Visual Arts on Sherkin Island two years ago – part of a unique programme offered by Dublin Institute of Technology. Several years before that, she completed a degree in Fashion Design at St Martins Central College in London.
