Living in South West Limerick, South west of Ireland which lies to the West of Europe, I work predominantly as an object maker
.The work I produce or fabricate, result from a consideration of the complex histories layered within the built and natural landscape, revealed through its material and form.
This exploration of physical, conceptual and natural structures in urban and rural space, is utilized to tease out how those structures inform our perceptions of place.
Our physical somatic engagement with the landscape is a central component to the work, specifically restrictions on that engagement.
On a practical level sculptural objects are sometimes developed through collaborative, socially engaged processes, resulting in Ad hoc interventions with security structures and urban architecture. Taking the form of tactical ladders steps and seats, these fabrications/devices can act as a form of creative resistance to restrictions and regulation of our everyday experience. Or a least in the form of a seat offer a moment of respite.
