Fiona Plunkett was born in the Bronx, New York and raised in West Cavan. She likes to use these two locations as an influence on her work. Her work is digital, taking her own photographs and manipulating them as a metaphor for the unreliability of memory.
Plunkett is finishing up studying Contemporary Art in CCAM, GMIT and has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in the college over the years.
For my work I use my own photographs and the memories they evoke as a base. As a metaphor for the unreliability of memory, I manipulate the photographs digitally, using a digital pencil to erase parts of the photograph and to make my own digitally textured marks, or by disorganising the photographs & manipulating them further. I like to make use of the blank spaces and to even make objects out of those spaces. I also enjoy showing the underlying labour of making the work.
