Elva Mulchrone lives and works between Dublin and London where she is completing an MA in painting at the Royal College of Art. Conceptually driven, her practice examines the role of economics, mathematics, game theory and abstraction in contextualising and re-contextualising an understanding of who and where we are, repeat pattern and of aesthetics. Her work reflects on the notion of balance as an ideal, from a personal and socio economic perspective. She seeks to operate within a time-lag between argument and interpretation, between the objective and the subjective so that another sort of meaning, and another sort of understanding can arise.
Her paintings are included in the Office of Public Works (Irish State) collection and her work has also been selected for inclusion in the Infrastructure-Fingal County Council's Public Art Programme 2017 - 2021. Her paintings are also included in the Trinity College Dublin Art Collection, as well as corporate and private collections in Ireland, UK, USA and Germany.
