Serena Caulfield (b. 1985) is an artist who makes paintings. Memories morph into tall tales. Invented imagery invites novel narratives. Transforming old to new, past to present, absence to presence, here to there, she likes to paint quickly and think slowly.
Serena has exhibited regionally and nationally. Recent group shows include Zurich Portrait Prize 2021, at the National Gallery of Ireland, 140th Annual Royal Ulster Academy Exhibition, Belfast, Crossings at King House, Boyle Arts Festival (2021), and MEET at Periphery Space, Gorey School of Art, (2021). Forthcoming group shows include Zurich Portrait Prize, Crawford Art Gallery, and GENERATION2022: New Irish Painting, Butler Gallery, Kilkenny.
Recent awards include The Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Bursary, an Artlinks Visual Arts Bursary and an Arts Council Agility Award. Serena has an MA in Fine Art from NUA, Norwich, UK (2009) and a BA from Gorey School of Art and Wexford Campus School of Art and Design, IT Carlow.
Her work is held in Wexford Co. Council collection, and in private collections nationally and internationally.
