Mary McIntyre’s photographs often present forgotten and overlooked spaces on the margins. Her work captures the transformation that occurs when for a fleeting moment, the play of light can transform a mundane, sub-urban environment into a resonant place.

Mary McIntyre was born in Northern Ireland where she lives and works. She graduated in 1990 with a Master of Fine Art from the at the University of Ulster, Belfast where she is a Reader in Fine Art. An Interior Landscape includes a specially commissioned installation for Visual which has been made in collaboration with DESIGNGOAT, Dublin.

The exhibition is accompanied by A Contemporary Sublime, a monograph of the artist’s work from 1998 - 2012, published by the MAC, Belfast, and featuring an essay by Dr. Suzanna Chan
