Eilis Murphy

Eilis Murphy is a visual artist who draws inspiration from forgotten or lost knowledge; interspecies communication and language; hidden narratives and memory. Artist’s books are her principal medium. Through them, she brings together diverse elements such as print, collage and participatory events, weaving multiple strands together. In 2022, she was awarded a Visual Arts Bursary from the Arts Council of Ireland to further develop her practice. In 2020, she was awarded the RDS Craft Award.

“My eco-feminist practice seeks to create connections with slower, older ways of being. I enjoy working collaboratively, often bringing people together to focus on social and ecojustice issues. My art practice is multilayered and multifaceted – both in terms of the media used and the ideas brought together. Artists’ books provide an experimental form to consolidate these ideas.”
