Who is Yvonne McGuinness?

Yvonne McGuinness is an Irish multimedia artist, well known for her artistic works in Ireland and the UK. She is a multi-talented artiste with proven expertise in various fields of visual art such as video installations, print art and live performances. Yvonne has also tried her hands at photography, sculpture, sewing, writing and customized art installations. These usually temporary projects create a base for other narratives to the persons involved in the project. Her artwork is primarily a subtle form of tension created between concealment and revelation. Her works display notions of self with a desire to express while also containing a pinch of deception. Yvonne has also made a few short films namely, ‘This is between us’, ‘Procession’ and ‘Charlie’s Place’. She is also famous as the wife of Cillian Murphy of ‘Batman’ series, but she hardly makes any public appearances or basks in the glory of her husband’s celebrity status.
