"TABLES/TABLEAUX" (my first solo exhibition!)
The Basement Gallery, Dundalk, Co. Louth, March 5th - 28th, 1998
The Signal Art Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow, January 26th - February 13 1999

In my sculptural work, I use found objects, photographic images, colours, and materials that I consider both simple and iconic, and I combine them to suggest personal histories, emotions, memories, and dreams.

I like to experiment with photography, printing images onto various materials (most notably glass, metal and painted surfaces) and incorporating them into a sculptural context. I enjoy the craft of woodworking and in my current work have created unique tables/tableaux which involve traditional lathe-work and carpentry. This current work also involves silk-screen printing onto sculptural surfaces.
