New Generation Gallery

I am a visual artist specialising in lens based media, working and living in Dublin. I have recently graduated with a second class honours in the BA Photography course in IADT, Dún Laoghaire. My work explores personal and social mythologies that exist under the surface of everyday life: religion, the supernatural, folk tales and secrecy. Recently my work has been focused on the Irish tradition of the oral tale, how the art of telling a story has influenced the way in which traditional Irish folk tales and mythology spread and change over time. I believe the flux state of a spoken story has strong ties to the ever changing meaning of a photograph, intrinsically linking the two together. Utilising analogue photographic practices and moving image, my visual pieces are paired with their own writings and the words of those I photograph to begin a new story that aims to create conversations surrounding these mythologies we don’t always pay attention to.
