BA (HONOURS) IN FINE ART, Crawford College of Art and Design

New Generation Gallery


A recent graduate from The Crawford College of Art and the recipient of a number of awards for my moving image and installation work, I am passionate about environmental sustainability, biodiversity, food security and local food networks. Drawing on personal experiences as an artist and oyster farmer based in the West of Ireland, my work examines the complicated relationships between land, landscape and ecology in a rural space. Layering conflicting histories of colonialism and invasion with current issues of biodiversity and coastal erosion, I work with photography and moving image installation. Text features in my work to create narrative and reference. Embracing the sublime, my work investigates the allure of the rural landscape whilst acknowledging the dark histories of the past. Creating immersive experiences, linking the many pasts with the present within the landscape, gives insight into the realities and expectations of land and sustainability in the Irish rural environment.
