Jean Curran (b.1981) is an artist best known for her luminous and rich dye transfer printed works on paper. Born in Ireland, Curran earned her MFA from the University of Ulster, Belfast. She trained as a dye transfer printer under Guy and Irene Stricherz. As one of only four dye transfer printers operating in the world today, Curran is the only contemporary artist using this highly skilled and almost obsolete method of printing as the basis of her artistic practice. Curran’s early career saw her working as photojournalist, first in Ireland and later throughout Africa while being based in Kenya.
