Sinead McCormick was born in Dublin in 1976 and is currently based on Sherkin Island, West Cork. She lived in Barcelona for over 16 years and continues to spend a lot of her time between Sherkin and Barcelona. The influence of these contrasting landscapes, one of a small island, the other a big city, and her movement from one culture to the other are evident in much of her work.
McCormick attended Chelsea College of Art and Design in the late 1990’s and is currently studying a BA in Visual Art on Sherkin Island. Her practice is concerned with the concept of borders, migration and our inherent interconnections to one another and to the land, often unacknowledged or obscured from view.
