Aoife Banville is visual artist based in Wexford, and the main focus for her work is exploring light. From a background in photography to working on aerial sculptures and bespoke chandeliers, she is interested in the poetic emotions of light and the positive feelings that it can evoke. Specialising in site-specific installations, she explores the juxtaposition of objects in outdoor or historic settings. In her work, commonplace objects and materials are used in multiples and repeatedly to create immersive and sensory environments as she is primarily interested in calling attention to the aesthetics of light and space.
