Exhibitions & Wider Collection
Her “Casino Salad” exhibition in 2009 at Moxie Studio Dublin 2, featured new works and a series of six paintings known as “The Sheelagh's” (or 'silés'), who are now having a lively existence of their own.
Kathrina's most recent exhibition, titled “Uncontained”, took place in her home county of Wicklow and catalogued her work from 2000 to 2015, garnering much media attention and local support. She is currently taking a course with South Eastern Creative Corridor, an initiative to support businesses and entrepreneurs who provide services to the creative industry.
From politically-charged statements to ethereal observations of life and myth, Kathrina Shine's work is the manifestation of the stories and meanings she has collected over her career to-date.
Employing the impasto knife technique in her contemplative and thought-provoking work, themes such as mythology, technology, politics, and the everyday, have all surfaced in vibrant abstractions of colour and shape.
Her first exhibition in 2000, titled “Experiments in Texture and Colour”, emphasized the impasto technique, the folding and moulding of paints with textures, across 28 oil paintings. All of which sold. Her second exhibition at Film Base in Temple Bar, archived her work up to 2005 and was titled “Paths to Ghostship and Beyond”.
