Central to my art practice is a concern with the encounter as a condition of art and how it manifests through perception. My most recent works are best described as events as they are predicated on a gathering and call people together to specific locations at specific times, for example, a forest at midnight, a flat due for demolition in Dublin’s city centre at dusk and the National Gallery of Ireland during closing hours. These events engage with the condition of art as an encounter by exploring how thinking may be ‘felt’.

Recent commissioned works include: Psychic Sleep and Collective Thought (2012/13) as part of the Maybe Education programme at dOCUMENTA XIII, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and at Catalyst Arts, Belfast; Metaphysical Longings, an on-going exploration of thought using forms of guided visualization known as psychic sleep; The Closing of Mystical Anarchism, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Dublin (2012); Parodos, Irish Museum of Modern Art (2012); The Unveiling, (2010), a site-specific work parodying the failed unveiling of a monumental sculpture for Dublin City Council and Cult of Engagement, Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2009) commissioned by Project Arts Centre.

Artworks are included in the permanent collection of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Limerick City Gallery of Art, The University of the Arts, London and the private collections of Anthony Reynolds and Kilfane Sculpture Garden. Projects have been supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Culture Ireland, European Cultural Union, South Dublin County Council, Dublin City Council, PRTLI (IR) and ARHB, (UK). I have also been awarded residencies at Banff, Canada, The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Virginia, US, IMMA, Sím, Reykjavik and the National Art Studios, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea.

I hold a BA in Fine Art from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, a MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, and a PhD titled Exploring the Philosophical Character of Contemporary Art through a Post-Conceptual Practice from GradCAM/DIT.
