Amanda Dunsmore employs art processes that explore representations of societal transformation through portraiture. She works with video, sound, photography and installation. Through sculptural methodologies and media, the mechanisms behind her practice have developed over the past twenty-five years. This results in contextual portraits involving longitudinal research processes. Her artwork is often presented as a series of extensive socio-political / historical art projects. Central to Amanda's art practice is an exploration of potential future memory, the legacy of visual parity in portraiture and the long-term implications of socio-political art making.
Amanda Dunsmore has exhibited widely in Ireland and internationally and her artworks can be found in private and public collections. Amanda is lecturer & programme leader in Sculpture & Combined Media at Limerick School of Art & Design, LIT.
