Roisin McDermott


My artwork is a meditation on my experience growing up and living in a hyperconnected world and serves as an exploration of the loneliness and irony that comes along with it. I am online everyday. I create artwork digitally. Because of my situation, I use my art to question my relationship with the digital facets of my life. My work discusses online surveillance and privacy, public and private personas, and the desire for connection exacerbated by social media and inhibited by self-isolation. My approach to work is tongue-and-cheek because I find these issues limiting, but self-inflicted, and I enjoy incorporating my sense of humor into my illustrations. I have recently moved away from digital work in favor of marker and ink for a hand-done feel, which confronts the isolation of a digitally-dependent society in a more personable, human medium.
