STUDIO 1 – Mimi Seery

All of the Time is Right Here Right Now by Mimi Seery as part of her Instagram series "The Miniature Museum of Public Art"
Still Life by Mimi Seery as part of her Instagram series "The Miniature Museum of Public Art"  This Is Temporary - Stills by Mimi Seery as part of her Instagram series "The Miniature Museum of Public Art" 

Mimi Seery is a multimedia artist working in the mediums of paint, photography and mixed media.

After receiving a BA in Fine Art in Sligo IT, Seery travelled extensively through Asia to experience the diversities and commonalties found between Western and Eastern cultures. Upon her return she went on to study graphic design at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE) where she focused on advertising and the principals of how the subject uses psychology for persuasion, this became a great influence on her current visual art practice. In 2018, Seery received the ICAD Upstarts award for rising Artists/Designers in Ireland. Her work has featured in exhibitions in Sligo, Dublin, Galway and Athlone. 

Abbey Road resident Mimi Seery has initiated an exciting new Instagram project entitled The Miniature Museum of Public Art.  This project relates to the artists' investigation of social isolation while also seeking alternative means for viewers to engage and interact with art online.

The Miniature Museum of Public Art encourages viewers to perform meditation exercises to unlock their imagination before entering the creative world Seery has created. The power of imagination immerses the viewer in this miniature world where time, space and lockdown restrictions no longer exist. They are there amongst their family and friends, together in this new realm, fully immersed in the art they are viewing.

This project can be found on Mimi Seerys Instagram page: @mimiseery
