Rachel Joynt RHA


Born in Caherciveen, Co. Kerry in 1966, Rachel grew up in Dublin and graduated with a Degree in Sculpture from National College Of Art & Design in 1989.  


Joynt’s work is predominantly site-specific; this goes for both her sand installations and public artworks. Her installations include Selene at Project Art Centre (1993) and Feed at Temple Bar Galleries (1999). Her public artworks include People’s Island (1988) on Dublin’s O’Connell Street Bridge, Mothership at Dun Laoghaire seafront (1999), Starboard alongside the River Lagan, Belfast (2001) and Noah’s Egg outside the Veterinary Building at University College Dublin (2004).


Joynts most recent commissions include Freeflow a glass cobble, illuminated work sited intermittently underfoot from the IFSC to the Point Theatre in Dublin, Love All a bronze globe in Templeogue village, Guiding Star a large cast iron starfish at Port Oriel fishing harbour in Co Louth and People's Acorn at Áras an Uachtaráin.
