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, site-specific multi-media approach in the 2000's and a return to painting since 2014.

Sarah Iremonger's multi-media installations utilized photography, murals, painting, drawing, badges, cards, digital media, video and neon.  Based in Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland, early work consisted of painting and was embedded in romantic and modernist traditions, with epic implications. Later works attempted to attain a kind of entanglement with the world through site-specific installations. These works explored representation and how as a hangover of the romantic tradition, a scenario of separation from the world around us, and each other has been perpetuated. A recent return to painting focuses on the appropriation and adaptation of found images, and a return to core issues around the illusion of perception. These works place subject matter and personal artistic expression in the background, so that visual signifiers become hidden in a forest of jewel like post-representational camouflage.
