Ann Maria Healy is a visual artist based in Ireland. Her work expresses itself through video, sculptural and textual form. Her practice is concerned with reoccurrence, the power of history and narratives embedded within the human psyche. She seeks to co-opt the embodied meaning of material in order to unpack and subvert it, often playing with notions of taste. Being drawn to narrative that is connected to place and object, the work seeks to employ mysticism as a device to reconsider our present moment.
Selected exhibitions include Hypnagogia – The Lab Gallery, Dublin, 2021, Desire-A Revision - Irish Museum of Modern Art, 2019 -2020, When Dealers Are Shamans, Pallas Projects, 2018. Previous residencies include Fire Station Artist Studios Dublin, 2017 -2020, Cow House Studios, Wexford, 2015 and The Banff Centre, Canada, 2014.

Her work is part of the Irish Arts Council Collection and was awarded a project studio at Temple Bar Gallery & Studios.
