Siobhán McDonald is a visual artist based in Dublin. Through her practice as a painter she examines the links between science and art, exploring processes of entropy and the potency of geological time. Whether examining the unstable volcanic landscapes of Iceland or Montserrat, she addresses ideas of fragility in the face of the power of nature. 

Siobhan's journey to Iceland in 2010 inspired this new body of paintings. She studied Eyjafjallajökull volcano 6 weeks after it had exploded with a specific interest in how the atmosphere is altered after natural events. The paintings exude a feeling of other-worldliness. Much of the imagery has deep time geological references: bleak unpopulated environments (land, space and sky). They are depictions of curious places that speak of hidden forces, chaotic unpredictability and energies boiling beneath the surface.
