Tina Dempsey’s work is primarily a responsive process, reacting to the range of materials she employs and to the social, physical and emotional spaces she traverses, documenting via colour, shape and form. Through the use of expressive mark making, print, collage, language, photography and painting, she creates a series of abstracted narratives that are constructed, dismantled and rebuilt into forms that explore the possibilities of media, scale and colour, offering an open ended association of meanings for the viewer to interpret.
Tina Dempsey graduated from the University of Central Lancashire in 2016 with a BA (First Class Honours) in Fine Art. In 2016 she received second prize in the Bath Open Art Prize, held at 44AD Gallery, Bath. Group shows include On – Going at SLOE Gallery, Manchester, AIR Open 2017 at AIR Gallery, Altringham, Looking In, Looking Through at Neo:gallery23, Bolton, Small World at Mirabel Studios, Manchester and Abingdon Studios at Grundy Gallery, Blackpool.
