Kristin O’Sullivan Peren is a multi-media artist whose practice responds to the extremities of land, language and object. Her work comes from a history as a print-maker, visible by a clear and developed methodology derived from materials and process. Recent large-scale projects extend within photographic, sculptural and electronic fields using both digital and analogue technologies.
O’Sullivan Peren has a Masters of Fine Arts and works out of KOP Studio in Bannockburn, Central Otago. Her work discusses within the traditional category of Beauty, a search for the Modern Sublime through technology, a longstanding contemporary response to climate change and ecological concerns and identity in post-colonial New Zealand. She often works with recycled materials.
O’Sullivan Peren has exhibited locally and internationally in public spaces and contemporary project galleries including in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Australia; and at worldwide artist residency communities. Recent large-scale exhibitions have integrated a unique process pioneered by O’Sullivan Peren using LED lighting and cast resin.
This is O’Sullivan Peren’s first time exhibiting in Sculpture in the Gardens.
