Drawing plays a significant role in Egan’s work, with a sketchbook providing a repository for the noting down of ideas and experimentation with forms that undergo many changes as they are transformed into collages, sculptures or films. Ideas are triggered through observation of her surroundings, be it the Irish landscape or the space in which she makes or exhibits work, and through memories of childhood experiences and works of literature.
