Logue’s practice stems from her training as a painter and printmaker and extends to include working with photography and moving image. Her practice is driven by her interest in specific individuals and communities and their behaviour in response to generational and historic shifts in their environment. Artoll’s setting in Bedburg-Hau, surrounded by residential houses for the treatment of the mentally ill, is a starting point for Logue to focus on the historical shifts and fragility of this location. Drawing parallels with the maintenance and repair of body and mind Logue ‘s attention is drawn to active evidence of tree maintenance and surgery on the site, pruning, chopping and removal. Through the work Logue plays with the juxtaposition of the real and unreal, the act and the simulation, the actual experience and the experience imagined.
Logue has exhibited nationally and internationally and has work in many private collections in the UK and abroad.
