How everything seems coherent, and then suddenly falls apart. Irvine’s oeuvre, comprising mainly films and videos, most often in the form of installations, explores not only the extremes of passion, […]

MARTIN MULL

The work is rendered in abstracted landscapes that contain realistic imagery of human figures and Americana motifs.

Her vision makes the banal wondrous and the quotidian unusual, sometimes even disturbing.
