Ivana Lavelle is a visual artist living and working in county Kildare, Ireland. Her practice explores tensions between reality and fiction of a place.
Her work draws on experiences of a landscape through documenting, removing and adding elements thus creating a new place. The process of modification of the factual to the fictitious is planned as little as possible, giving the work a certain fluidity, presenting the known with a new role.
The work is realized predominantly through drawing and painting.
Ivana has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions in Ireland and her work is in a number of private collections.
