About Artist

My projects include INFERNO (2002-2004), a series of paintings in resin and gloss paint that explore the antagonisms of chemistry through the prism of Dante’s Inferno; CARDIAC (2004-2006), a collaboration between molecular biology, painting and computer technology, developed with Dr Sandra Austin, cardiovascular research scientist, and Daan Archer, proteomics/systems biology scientist at the Conway Institute, University College Dublin, exploring the psychological, aesthetic and social signification of the heart through the image and action of the cardiomyocyte (http://research.gold.ac.uk/7712/1/Derval%20Tubridy%20'Cardiac'.pdf); ADJACENCY (2009-2012), a series of paintings and mixed media works based on the map of Derry and related materials drawn from the Widgery Tribunal and the Saville Inquiry into the shooting of civil rights protesters on Bloody Sunday 1972, exploring the slippage between topography and cartography, between narrative and the event, within the context of an ethics of adjacency (http://www.dervaltubridy.com/adjacency_new.html). My current project is REDACTION, a series of paintings based on a CIA Special Review of counterterrorism, detention and interrogation activities.
In addition, I am part of the Joseph Boshier Collective that, through archive, film, and fiction explores the interconnections between identity, memory, history and spatial practice (http://www.josephboshier.co.uk/), and The Future State, a creative research collective that examines cultural responses to economic and political crises using Ireland as a paradigm for global pattern, with a view to broadening the understanding and awareness of contemporary Irish art (http://www.thefuturestate.org.uk/about/). I lecture on literature and visual culture at Goldsmiths, University of London (http://www.gold.ac.uk/visual-cultures/d-tubridy/).
