Biography

I am a studio based artist, by this I mean that most of my experimentation and research would be carried out in the workshop. I experiment constantly and use the mediums quite often as a narrative in the work. I work in sculpture materials such as clay, micro crystalline wax, clear casting resin, shellac, matches, lead, plaster, bronze and oil paints. A lot of these recurrent materials and objects in my work have come about from reflections of my childhood or are a result of personal experiences. These experiences have given rise to sculptural objects or drawings that hold references of symbolic significances to me.

Over the last number of years my growing interest in drawing has also lead me into the field of animation. Working as a sculptor I feel that this development is a natural one since animation lends a sculptural element to drawing. These are sometimes ___doodles__™ concerned mainly with the motion and the texture of the animation and others are parts of a story to be continued although the story itself maybe inconclusive some elements are actual personal events. As an artist I feel that my interest in drawing asserts a certain ephemeral and narrative element to my sculptures and I find the more I work on both the more they enable me to develop and the more I understand about each form of expression.

In September 2010 I held a comprehensive solo exhibition in the communal area of my studio space at 86 Jamestown road Inchicore, which amounted to a culmination of seven years of practice. This exhibition consisted of over seventy works of drawings, free standing sculptures, wall mounted sculptures, animation shorts, an installation and four hundred individually drawn stills from several animation sequences.

The solo show in September 2010 has enabled me to move to Madrid while maintaining my studio space in Dublin. Presently I divide my time between sculpture in Dublin and drawing and networking in Madrid.
