Isabel Nolan


Isabel Nolan’s expansive practice incorporates paintings, sculpture, photographs, textile work, work on paper and writing. ‘Curling up with reality’ brings together a survey of her work over the last decade including significant exhibitions such as Kunstverein Langenhagen (2018); EVA International, Limerick (2018); Douglas Hyde Gallery (2017) Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2016) and Irish Museum of Modern Art (2014). The publication also features 20 of Nolan’s writings which explore everything from the work of fellow artists Willie Doherty and Garret Phelan to atomic aesthetics and personal musings about the fictional Tony Soprano in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
