About

2G Irish contemporary artist working in wild west Wales and southern Germany.

My work is in response to place. I’m drawn to wild places and vernacular architecture; buildings that have “grown” out of the landscape, where local materials were used in construction and function took precedent over aesthetics.

I work in acrylics on wood panel using crayons, markers, collage and spray paint. I like to retain portions of each painting as a drawn element reflecting the fragility and temporality of the structures. I see my work as part representation, part visceral interpretation.

      1. Hi Pete Thanks for your comments.
        Lucy Jones I don’t know her but I do believe I’ve met her. Think she has a studio at Coberg House. Is she a friend of yours? Her Edinburgh buildings are very good and she also did a residence in Shetland and produced some work on Burra which is where my family have a house.

      2. Hi Drew, I love the look of that residency on Shetland. Lucy is based in the wasps studios somewhere in Edinburgh. I’d like to get to Scotland soon…so much to inspire. P
