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.
