Artist In Residence Brochure

THE ARTIST

Miriam Fitzgerald Juskova is a visual artist originally from Slovakia, living in Ireland for almost 20 years, creating three-dimensional paper artwork bringing mathematics and art together. Her work is also known as ‘Paper on Edge’, an old traditional technique based on paper quilling. By combining this technique with her passion for mathematics, she brings new dimensions to contemporary art and joy to everyday life.

Graduated  a furniture designer, she was always inspired by geometry and mathematics, strong subjects in her family, with her mother and sister both working as mathematics teachers. In 2019 Miriam finished her job as a structural engineer to enter the art world and because a full time artist.

Miriam is showing at The Montenotte Hotel until July 2022 in association with The Gallery Kinsale.

THE ART

This is her first solo exhibition, and the main piece ‘You Are All Invited’ was especially created for the exhibition. It signifies openness and hope of good things to come.

In this exhibition, Miriam expands on her passion for colourful patterns and geometry, working with calm but also brave colours combinations, with symmetry and repetition of geometric shapes, creating various configurations.

To create each piece, she spends hours designing, cutting, folding and gluing paper, in order to achieve required depth and movement. It is the mixture of curiosity and precision which makes her pieces unique. Some of her pieces are created intuitively, while others are carefully pre-designed and measured.

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW – but a year to be very proud.

As we say goodbye to 2021, a year that has arguably been hugely challenging for our industry, we can’t help but be hopeful that 2022 will be a better one.

Even with all the challenges that faced us this year, what with us being in restrictions for the first five months of the year, here at The Montenotte Hotel, like so many others we pivoted, and this started by us opening our Vintage Van Café outside the front door of the hotel. The opening of the Vintage Van allowed us to bring some of our team members back to work. The locals here around the hotel in the Montenotte area, loved the Vintage Van Café as they went for walks within their 5KM radius. We are so appreciative of the support that the local community provided us with during those early days of 2021.
