Tracy Staunton is an artist with a background in architecture. Her primary degree is a BA Arch (Hons) from UCD, her MA ACW was received from NCAD. Her practice since 1994 has included work in printmaking, drawing, installation and film. The work has consistently engaged with architecture in some form. Interests revolve around themes of the trace of time and memory on cities, buildings. ’10 Dreams in Dublin from 2003, and ‘Wounded Time’ from 2010 both explored notions of the persistence of the past in the present. ’10 Dreams used a technique of screen-printing on walls of buildings around Dublin. ‘Wounded Time’ used drawing and video. ‘Keeper’ from 2006 posited a ‘House-mind’, a building that sees and remembers; a thinking structure. All three projects used video to imagine a past that is present while invisible. She has had solo exhibitions at the Kevin Kavanagh gallery in Dublin, and selected shows in Ireland and abroad. Most recently she have exhibited at the RHA annual exhibition in Dublin in 2020, and the RUA annual exhibition in Belfast in 2019. Her work featured in the exhibition ‘and the Women voted: Women artists from the AIB art collection at DLR lexicon, Dunlaoighaire in 2018. She has taught Art, Design and Architectural courses at Colaiste Dhulaigh, NCAD and TUD since 2002. She is a long standing member of the Black Church Print Studio in Dublin, and Chairperson of the Board there since 2020.1
