Stephen Dunne is a visual artist from Dublin, based in Virginia, Ireland. He is a graduate of the M.A program in painting at the Royal College of Art in London and of NCAD in Dublin. His practice operates across the registers of painting, drawing, moving image and the investigation of speculative and theoretical fictions.

Works are produced in a spontaneous manner and attempt to draw upon the unconscious as a source material, investigating an idea of delirious narrativity as a means of production. The process of making, where each thing leads to the next through an experimental and intuitive approach is at the core of this work.

Ideally the subsequent work acts as a trigger for fragments of shared memory brought to the surface via a type of riffing on imagery both familiar and drawn from narratives prevalent in popular culture.

Selected exhibitions include: Worms In Your Head, A Journey, Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon Co. Clare, May 2019; Shackled To Belligerent Ghosts, Triskel Arts Center, Cork, April 2019; Uchronia, Not As It Was, But As It Might Have Been, Ashford Gallery, RHA, Dublin, February 2019; “The Tyranny of Ambition” Highlanes Drogheda, Feb 2023, “Call Me”, Galerie PCP, Paris, April 2022, Wilder Beings Command, Irish Museum of Modern Art, July 2017; As Above, So Below: Portals, Visions, Spirits & Mystics, Irish Museum of Modern Art, April-August 2017.
