Sorcha Jewell is a multi-media artist whose work focuses on 2D and 3D drawing. Her work predominately addresses ideas of disability, chronic pain and the challenges that come with living in a dysfunctional body. Using print making, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation, her most recent work explores issues such as how can we get comfortable with being uncomfortable and where does line between support and restriction lie. In particular, when it comes to disability justice in a time of isolation and quarantine.
Drawing from her fascination with how the human body works, she often uses anatomy, cellular structures and life drawing as starting points.
Jewell uses her art to show what she cannot explain with words, in order to both emotionally process her own condition and also in the hope that it may help others with chronic conditions.
