Sorcha’s work explores subconscious thought, automatism and the unconscious.
Since a young age the vividness of her dreams have inspired her creativity and imagination. Her time studying at Newcastle University, between 2012 and 2016 gave her the ability to explore this subject matter further. Her main practice is in video and drawing.
The videos Sorcha creates, examine the complexity of the mind, psychological phenomena and theabstract narratives in dreaming. Each video immerses the viewer into a visual representation of the varying levels of consciousness.
Her drawings combine dream motifs with personal experiences. She uses her illustrations to attempt to visually express the thoughts and memories experienced in a person's dreaming and waking life, that often prove difficult to express by verbal means.
