ABOUT THE ARTIST
Evgeniya Martirosyan is a Cork based artist and current member of Cork Artist Collective.
Her practice stems from her interest in science and philosophy and represents an intuitive response to concepts of time, matter, chaos and transformation. Working with elemental materials and using a broad range of techniques, she explores the poetic possibilities of the fluid and constantly shifting state of things.
Martirosyan graduated from the Crawford College of Art and Design in 2016, receiving a number of awards and residencies at Sample-Studios and The National Sculpture Factory.
Since graduating Evgeniya has received the 2018 VAI Residency Award at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre and individual bursary awards from Cork City Council Arts Office and The Arts Council of Ireland.
Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally and her piece ‘Chrysalis‘ (2021) has been acquired for the National Collection by the Crawford Art Gallery.
