A print I made for Pallas Projects is included in the show The Future is Self-Organised — Artist-Run Spaces curated by Pallas Projects at Limerick City Gallery of Art. The exhibition continues until the 15th of January so if you are in Limerick call in and have a look. It's above the TV on the left.
Beneath That Darkness There Was Another is a solo exhibition of my work opening at Pallas Projects on Wednesday 25th March 2015 and continuing until the 11th April.

Tentamen was a group exhibition in a Georgian House at 13 North Great George's Street. Below are some images of my work and a video walkthrough of the show.
The exhibition also featured the work of Lucy Andrews, Alan Butler, Joseph Coveney, Aoibheann Greenan, David Eager Maher and John O’Connell.
Original pencil drawing on tracing paper. This was scanned and turned in a vector in Illustrator.
Pieces being cut from 4mm birch ply.
The sculpture as a wall mounted piece.
This turned out to be a stubborn piece of ply and required 3 passes of the laser to fully cut through. This resulted in more orange staining (caused by smoke) then would typically be the case, though I quite like the added variation in colouring.

This is a new version of a booklet first produced in 2006. The booklet has been redesigned and some changes made to the content.
Each of these word loops takes a pair of words with opposite meanings as its starting point. A thesaurus was used to find a synonym for one of these words and then to find a synonym for that synonym and so on. Each new word suggested by thesaurus involves a slight slippage of meaning. These slippages accumulate resulting in a complete inversion of the original meaning. This process is repeated using the second word from the pair until the loop has been completed.

Lauren Hisada wrote about the exhibition for The Dubliner Magazine which comes with the Evening Herald on Thursdays. Here is a PDF of that review.
