Zara Lyness is a mixed media artist based in Pollen Studios and Gallery in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She makes performance work and sculptural objects, often combining both.  Her practice progresses through play and repetition, autobiography, interaction and a lowering of barriers, allowing the viewer a space for recognition and dialogue. The value and significance of objects and materials, (implied and perceived), is an underlying motive in the forms she makes. 

An important aspect of her work, both in solo and group projects, is to create a sense of inclusion for the viewer that encourages further investigation rather than disengaging the public.

As  regular art workshop facilitator in R-Space at the Linen Rooms Gallery in Lisburn, Co Down, she encourages participants to play, without judgement, and give themselves permission to experiment.
