McCann’s work is a considered, individual voice in contemporary Irish art; effortlessly correlating strands of three dimensional work, painting/drawing and installation. This in itself is unpredictable and frequently humorous, most immediate in the playful use of appropriated political figuration in her latest body of work, Furtive Tears.
Currently showing in Ghosts From The Recent Past in IMMA, McCann has recently installed the public sculpture Bile Buadha at Termini Complex, Sandyford. Previous exhibitions include La Perruque (Protest Song), MAC Belfast, Changing States, BOZAR, Belgium and Without-Boundaries, Wäinö Attonen Museum of Art, Finland.
The artist is recipient of various Arts Council awards and national and international arts residencies.
McCann is represented in collections of the Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane, IMMA; Limerick City Gallery, Swansea City Council Collection; The London Institute; and Hiscox Collection, London.
