Visual artist and Illustrator based in Co. Leitrim
|Description of practice/Biography||
The main focus of my work lies with the juxtaposition of (and the dialogue between) a feral, unhinged natural wilderness and a hypothetical, often retro-futuristic dystopia of crowded, oppressive architecture and a toxic, barren infrastructure. The levels of abstraction in the visuals frequently vary, allowing for a specific mood-based level of interpretation of the depicted scenery that the titling of the works only seeks to minimally guide.
Though I always begin my artistic process on paper or canvas, eventual digital augmentation frequently forms a key part of it, allowing me to completely alter and elevate those parts of the imagery I consider the most relevant or transporting.
