Biography

Irene Montemurro was born in Lugano, Switzerland and grew up in Basilicata, Southern Italy before moving to London to study at Camberwell College of Arts (UAL). Irene’s ink drawings exploit the potential narratives that images are able to suggest without needing to resolve them. Her subjects include: the exciting, tactile qualities of familiar and unfamiliar bodies, tension, repetition and patterns, the awkward dynamics at play within amorous and sexual interactions, and the romanticised relationships we build with the places we inhabit and those we leave behind.
