Caragh Thuring: Sirenuse Art Project, Positano
The Sirenuse Art Project was established in 2015 in Positano. Curated by Silka Rittson-Thomas and commissioned by Antonio and Carla Sersale, the project annually invites an artist to Le Sirenuse to permanently present a site-specific and iconic work from the heart of their practice while considering elements of this historic hotel.
For the 2020 edition, Caragh Thuring has created a painting and a series of gessoed panels inspired by the nearby Vesuvius as well as the hotel’s extensive collection of volcano paintings, gouaches and etchings.
Volcanoes are a sustained feature in Thuring's work, a cross-section of an erupting volcano being the first painting she made at the start of her studio practice. Thuring has since painted numerous views of volcanoes, thoughtfully exploring their symbolic, mythical and natural power.

Michael Landy and Caragh Thuring: Scarf Up Project
Michael Landy and Caragh Thuring are two of nine artists who have designed unique scarf patterns for CW+ — the official charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The #ScarfUp project will be used by patients in hospitals suffering from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and those recovering from COVID-19. Volunteer knitters are encouraged to make and donate these scarves to the hospital, so that patients can receive them when returning for follow-up appointments.

Caragh Thuring: Question Centre presents Caragh Thuring, Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins at Westminster Waste
Private View: Saturday 16 July, 4-8pm
Exhibition Dates: 17 July - 24 July, 2016
Ilderton Wharf, London SE15
Question Centre is a nomadic platform of short-term exhibitions that draws on generational bonds among artists. It presents fresh works by a contemporary artist alongside a piece by a practitioner from a previous generation, conceived the year the younger one was born. Such piece may be an artwork or any other item or event that offers an insight into the year of birth of the invited artist. This 'obstruction' aims to both contextualise a present day practice within a historical perspective and play with the general obsession of the 'forever young' - omnipresent in the artistic environment - thus raising questions concerning generation and context.
On its third edition, Question Centre is thrilled to present a series of twelve new paintings by Caragh Thuring alongside a 1972 Thames Television footage featuring maverick snooker player Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins.
The project is developed by Maria do Carmo M. P. de Pontes.
Caragh Thuring at Chisenhale Gallery
Chisenhale Gallery presents a new body of work by London-based painter, Caragh Thuring, and her first solo exhibition in a public gallery.
Caragh Thuring: New Works, Anthony Meier Fine Arts, San Francisco
Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Caragh Thuring. In her inaugural exhibition at the gallery, Thuring exhibits a body of work that ties together ideas and motifs previously referenced in her work.
Thuring invites a sense of wonder, presenting several compositions rife with incongruities of scale and dimension. Meanwhile, other paintings present tangible objects – a window balcony, an ornately fastened rope – whose properties are fully bound in realism and physics.
Drawing from her own experience, Thuring takes inspiration from a range of source material, including her own photographs, books, travels, memories, and her knowledge of art history. Galarus and San Petronio, for example, depict the marquetry of a choir stall in Bologna, while Pool Palmrecollects surfacing from a swimming pool to encounter a looming palm tree. In both cases the general scale is shifted and obscured in an otherwise realistic presentation.
Characteristic in her use of unprimed linen, Thuring’s paintings feature figures and elements amidst an open background; layered paint and unpopulated linen create a depth of field that leaves much to the imagination. A figure constructed of bricks lounges in the corner of one canvas, while outlined half-figures direct another scene.
Tying these together are several themes repeated throughout: pyramids, window panes, brick constructions – each presented in an imaginative arrangement.
Caragh Thuring was born in Brussels in 1972. She lives and works in London. Her work is included in many public and private collections, among them the Tate, the Zabludowicz Collection, and the Saatchi Collection.
