As an Irish diasporan figurative painter, my work is a reflection of my unique upbringing in both Ireland and the USA. My paintings are an exploration of the cultural clashes and conflicts that have shaped my identity and are informed by my view of what 'home' is: whether it be in a specific place, person or memory. I normally depict scenes that have never occurred in real life, but rather are loose representations from my memory which form an ambiguous moment in time that is personal to me. I’m currently intrigued by the menacing nature of Irish youth culture as a sociological phenomenon and aim to explore these issues through narrative and formal investigations.
