Irene Graham

The focus of Graham’s printmaking is centred on her domestic life.
The monotony, the repetition, the routine, the constant nature of the home. Printmaking is a way of processing this, exploring it through the medium of etching or drypoint.

The imagery she uses is a reflection of her life as a homemaker.
She chooses the everyday: cups, shoes, children’s toys. Most recently she has been referencing her use of Instagram as a way of collating family images. Using the quickly captured photograph from social media and relaying that same image within the medium of print.
She assesses the intimacy of family life and the quiet but integral relationships that happen within it. How as we grow, we age and we change. How our relationships with one another constantly change and develop.
