Kate MacDonagh


Kate MacDonagh is a Sligo born artist currently living and working in Dublin. She studied at The Limerick School of Art and Design, Bellas Artes Madrid, Bob Blackburn Printmaking Studio, New York and MI-Lab, Fujikawaguchiko, Japan.


MacDonagh is an abstract artist whose work explores dualities of light and dark, scale and ephemerality, stillness and movement, the spectral and the material. Since spending time in Japan throughout the last six years, Kate’s primary focus is on water-based woodcut (Mokuhanga) and water colour painting. From carving wood blocks to making prints, the carvings have taken on a new dimension becoming sculptural objects in themselves.


Kate is a member of The Graphic Studio, Dublin.
