Irma Irsara

Irma Irsara has a special interest in ecology, conservation and climate change. These have always guided her creative practice. She was brought up in the foothills of Monte Croce in the Italian Dolomites. Where her paternal grandfather managed significant areas of woodland in Fanes National Park. This has always influenced he artwork.

Irma studied at the Scuola d’Arte di Ortisei & Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino, both in Italy, and St Martins School of Art. She also studied Country Care and Conservation at Capel Manor Horticultural College to develop her knowledge of Conservation.

Her work encompasses a broad range of media and techniques: installations, video, bookworks,

photography, prints and the pulp/cotton fibre works which represent a large part of her output.

Her fibre art ‘pulp‘ work uses organic material and storm debris such as fallen bark. This is combined with pure cotton to create lyrical reflections of changes in natural forms. For example, her series ‘Watermarks’ explored rising water levels as evidenced in the lines on canal walls.

Irma Irsara has shifted her focus to invisible nature, micro pollution and micro fibre plastics. Through the use of micro-photography, film and time lapse she has created a new range of artworks.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
