Biography

Rebecca Gleeson’s work explores themes of isolation, memory, distance, and narrative. These concerns have been explored through seascapes, image appropriation, found materials, and making use of archival or museum presentation methods. Gleeson primarily works with intaglio printmaking, with a particular interest in mezzotinting, and detailed aquatints. This mechanical printwork is upheld by a practice backed up by a keen interest in drawing, and an interest in working reflexively; looking for synchronicity between desired outcomes and what the printing matrix provides. Gleeson graduated from Dublin’s National College of Art & Design in 2021. She is now a member of the Black Church Print Studio in Dublin. Exhibiting highlights include, ‘Monochromatic’ in the Graphic Studio Dublin Gallery in 2024, ‘Small Things Like These’ in the LHQ Gallery, Cork in 2023, and ‘Emerging Practice’, in The Library Project, Dublin in 2022.
