‘Remember When 5’, by Esther Breslin

Esther Breslin graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2011 with a BA Honours in Fine Art, Printmaking. Following this she became a member of Graphic Studio Dublin from where she carried out her practice between 2011 and 2013. In February 2013 she moved to Norway where she currently works and lives.

Primarily Esther works with etching and uses this medium and its attributes to investigate the subjectivity of memory. Her prints are often composed of elements of different scenes or are fragmented in a way that aims to illustrate remembering as a process that is more recontructive than it is reproductive. A sense of romanticism and nostalgia permeates her work as she explores the influence of emotional tendencies on cognitive processes.

Esther has exhibited work both at home and internationally and has work in private as well as public collections. Today she is a member of The Water Colour Society of Ireland, Norske Grafikere (The Association of Norwegian Printmakers) and Norske Billedkunstnere (The Norwegian Visual Artists Organisation).
