A veteran printmaker, Alice Hanratty's images are of figures based on classical antiquity and echo the sculptural qualities of the Greek artists of the 4th and 5th centuries. She attains a mode of representation that conveys a vitality of life, as well as a sense of permanence, clarity and harmony. They demonstrate a noble simplicity stripped of individual and transitory aspects giving them a universal and archetypal significance. Alice Hanratty is a member of Aosdána and her work has been included in major Irish and International shows.

Over the centuries artists have chosen the subject of still life for numerous reasons. Although Hyde acknowledges the grace, beauty, even the social importance and demonstration of wealth that such imagery has historically portrayed, her treatment of the subject reveal a simple world of observation exploring tone, colour and form. According to Matisse the more you reduce and simplify the drawing of an image the more you could increase the expressive power of colour. Hyde portrays the simplification of common fruit and flowers through a series of screen prints. She breaks down key elements of texture and colour that give a freshness and individuality to each of her still lives. Siobhan Hyde is a current member of Graphic Studio Dublin and her work has been exhibited in National Gallery of Ireland.
