Sinead Reed-Forrester

Sinead's work explores the human condition through figurative paintings and drawings. She is interested in the relationship between representation and abstraction. Other themes include identity, the unseen and the process of painting and drawing. Mistakes, raw expression, and the instinctive nature of painting and drawing are key to her practice.


Portraiture has been a continual focus within her practice and she approaches them abstractedly and instinctively.  Sinead's portrait commissions aim to be honest, authentic and unique to each individual. Capturing the mood of each subject is an important; the diversity of human beings inspires her. Through the instinctive process of painting she wants to access what’s behind a person’s facade, she likes that there is a history of experiences, thoughts, emotion and imagination to draw from.
