Natasha Pike is an Irish artist with an MA in Art & Process from Crawford College of Art and Design, IRL (2019), a BA in Fine Art from Falmouth University, UK (2007) and a Foundation Diploma from Manchester Metropolitan, UK (2002). She has been awarded residencies at The Cill Rialaig Project and The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Ireland, as well as in Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Berlin. Natasha worked in Berlin for several years before returning to base herself in Ireland, working in abstract painting and made sculptural object.

In 2021, Natasha received Arts Council funding to research for an artist publication, an ongoing project which evolved out of her solo exhibition ‘Tropisms’ at Clonakilty Arts Centre. The publication will feature contributions from a range of scientific and academic disciplines sitting alongside an art practice. The term tropism is defined as the biological response of an organism to an external stimulus, and here it is used as a conceptual basis to explore relationship and response to matter. Observing the tension between language and material, the book brings a range of critical perspectives into conversation with artistic research through making.

In 2020 Natasha was shortlisted for the RDS Visual Art Awards and was the recipient of the Lismore Castle Arts Graduate Award resulting in a solo exhibition at St Carthage Hall (downloadable catalogue here)

Last year saw selection for a Backwater Artists Group exhibition ‘CLOSER’ curated by Janice Hough (IMMA) at Lavit Gallery and throughout 21-22 participation on the peripheriesMEET correspondence programme at Gorey School of Art. Contributing an artists profile Vibrant Matter to the VAI newssheet in 2022, she is a member of Backwater Artists Network and The Glitter Heap; an interdisciplinary info-sharing group rooted in biodynamic growing and sustainable art practice.
