My practice is concerned with interacting with geography and people in specific sites to create material representations of these encounters. This articulates itself in drawing, ephemeral public installations and sculptural paper cut out pieces. Looking at cartography and through collaborations with others I create a subjective record of a place in time using analog techniques.
I work in a pared down way using mainly paper, pigment or other impermanent materials for my ephemeral site specific work. Walks, social history and topography combine to produce a type of visual relational geography.
I am currently DCU Artist in Residence where I have been creating a body of work on the local geography in response to the research of Dr. Ruth Mc Manus, Associate Professor of Geography.
I have also been working on the Culture on Prescription project which combats social isolation through artistic activity with DCU’s Age Friendly University and delivered a workshop called ‘Building Stories’ with people in the Drumcondra surroundings.
