Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be asking a number of artists to discuss and describe their work using the fun and familiar format of comic strips.
In this, our first in the series of Comic Strip Blogs , artist Maeve Clancy discusses her practice and highlights the techniques that she feels are important to employ when delivering work with young people.
Maeve Clancy is an artist who works in installation, animation and comics. She creates work for children and adults using cut paper, story and drawings. She has worked on music videos for singer Lisa Hannigan, mounted solo exhibitions and written both fictional and historical comic stories.
Recent commissions include a paper installation for the Tall Ships Festival Dublin, a permanent artwork in perspex and light for St John the Baptist Boy's School in Clontarf, Dublin, a pop up book for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 advertising campaign and a large scale installation at a National Trust property in Somerset, UK.
She is currently creating the set for Branar Téatar do Pháistí's upcoming puppet theatre piece 'Bláth' and working on a solo exhibition for Mantova, Italy due in Summer 2014.
