Donoghue’s breathtaking work is comprised of a collection of large-scale gyclee prints, depicting a series of strikingly lit human/animal hybrids arranged in black space. These images, born from pencil drawings, are digital creations. Transferred from page to screen, constructed from photography and then manipulated. The final images possess a sense of magical reality, underpinned by the suggestion of something more sinister and foreboding.
This exhibition will comprise new digital print work made from photographic scans, installation pieces that incorporate sound, video and animatronics, as well as original drawings. It is Donoghue’s first solo show since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2012 and so will showcase the evolution of her practice over the last few years.
