Shannon is a Dublin based artist. Her work explores humour and satire of political
and authoritative figures, amplifying the intrigue and interest of her audience. She
utilizes dark humour and reality to create critical and humorous messages. The
paintings she makes undermine connections with the history of traditional painting
In the history of painting, refined and flattering portraits are traditional. The work
turns this notion on its head. Her portraits undermine the person’s authority & status,
linking her work with the historical tradition & contemporary notions of mockery.
Shannon places hierarchy figures in scenarios one wouldn’t normally view them in,
triggering a sense of confusion or question to her audience. The visual material,
subject and conceptual concerns are fuelled by the media machine that never stops
giving and she is fascinated with how political & authoritative figures react, behave
and comment on the current world crisis.
