BA (Hons) Photography, IADT
New Generation Gallery
I am a visual artist based in Dublin Ireland. My work is a combination of mainly portraiture and fine art photography, often with a sculptural element to the images and the ways in which they are installed. Water surrounds us, it is within us; it heals us and breathes life into us. 'Blue Hour' is a meditative visual journey of water and the memories it holds. Composed of a series of three photographic prints accompanied by a plaster sculpture of the artist's hand, containing collected rainwater in the palm. This work explores the connection between water, memory and the human body. The water which we embody is the very water that returns to the sea to begin the cycle once again. A visual metaphor of the cycles of life itself. It is an everlasting journey, creating and holding memories along the way. Blue Hour portrays this ongoing act of remembering.
