Niamh McGuinne's training as a fine art conservator has influenced how she approaches the concepts of permanence and timelessness, and how these can distort reality and our perceptions of the spaces around us. "Surreal Estate" explores the themes of dereliction and abandonment with an installation combining print, sculpture and animated film mediums, with 22 cuboid boxes containing etchings and prints of empty rooms. Examining the relationship between shadows, reflections and windows, and the effect that ageing can have on a place, Niamh challenges the spectator to glimpse the interiors of their own lives, and see what secrets and debris lie there.

Niamh McGuinne graduated from Newcastle-upon-Tyne Polytechnic in 1991 with an MA degree in the Conservation of Fine Art on Paper. She has worked in a number of museums and galleries in the UK and Ireland and is currently a paper conservator in the National Gallery of Ireland. She became a member of Graphic Studio Dublin in January 2010.

Michael Timmins is heavily influenced by his travels and his interest in observing the space around him. Using his camera as a means to document the places he has been, his lithograph prints become almost like a visual diary. This series of prints is based on photographs Michael has taken over the past six years. Some of the works rely heavily on inspiration directly from the photograph, while other prints take on a life of their own and become something entirely new. This series focuses primarily on the use of light in the photographs, and how the light changes at different times throughout the year.

Michael Timmins graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology in 1999 with an honours degree in Fine Art (Printmaking). He has worked in all print media but has recently been concentrating in the medium of lithography. He has exhibited widely in both Ireland and abroad; his work is included in private and public collections. In 2003 he travelled to Saint Johns in Newfoundland, Canada on an exchange with St. Michael's Printshop where he worked for an intensive three week period making lithographs. In 2007, he completed the Tamarind Institute's printer-training programme in New Mexico, USA. He is currently a member of Graphic Studio Dublin.
