This website spans more than thirty years of Sarah Iremonger's visual art practice, from the first paintings in the early 1990's, to the conceptual work of the late 1990's, a multimedia approach in the 2000's and a return to painting since 2014.

Sarah Iremonger uses a multimedia approach of found, created and adapted images, including photographs, murals, painting, drawing, badges, cards, digital media, video and neon in her work.  Based in Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland, early works were embedded in romantic and modernist traditions, with epic implications.

Later works, included site-specific installations, attempted to attain a kind of entanglement with the world, exploring ideas of representation and how as a hangover of the romantic tradition, a scenario of separation from the world around us and each other, is perpetuated. A recent return to painting focuses on the appropriation and adaptation of found images, which places subject matter and personal artistic expression in the background, so that visual signifiers become hidden in a forest of post-representational camouflage like thought experiments exploring the illusion of perception.
